Pickleball is like a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. The game combines elements of each, making it fun, fast-paced and easy to pick up for beginners. Some people describe it as giant ping pong, except you're standing on the table. However you look at it, it's a lot of fun!
One element making made pickleball popular is, even though it packs a lot of action into a quick game, it's not too physically demanding. It's an excellent game for all ages. This year's West End Pickleball Classic, held by the Pickleball Club of Chesterfield County, included more than 200 participants, with an age range from 10 to 83.
Pickleball has become increasingly popular in the Richmond area in the last few years, and public demand for more pickleball facilities have paid off. Our local Parks & Recreation Department committed to building 18 new pickleball courts last year, and Richmond now has more places to play than ever before. These are some of our favorites:

Chesterfield County homes for sale are some of the top in Virginia, and there are all sorts of reasons why. With the breathtaking beauty of two historic rivers and its convenient location just south of Richmond, Chesterfield thrives as the state's fourth-most populous county.
Chesterfield County is a great place to visit any time of year, but one event that draws people from all over is the annual Chesterfield County Fair. One of the longest-running events of its kind in the United States, it'll be celebrating its 106th year this August.
From August 23 to 31, the Chesterfield County Fair will bring gladness to the young and the young at heart here in central Virginia. Locals go all out for the Fair, known for its combination of concerts, agricultural events, and kid-friendly rides on the midway.
Preparations are in full swing for the 2019 Fair, which promises to be the biggest yet!
There's so much to do that organizers have put together a daily Fair calendar to help visitors navigate the events. The headlining daily attraction is the 3-Ring Super Circus, including an array of award-winning acrobats, clowns, jugglers, and daredevil thrill acts.
That alone could occupy you for hours, but there's much, much more.
The Chesterfield Tractor Club is a major sponsor of the Fair and will hold fun events and competitions daily. Watch or take part in barrel train rides, rope making, mill grinding, and more. You can also visit the Club's baby animal petting zoo, suitable for your kids.
Every year, history buffs from around the Richmond area come together to create the remarkable Heritage Village. The Village will excite and educate you with oxen wagon rides, craft demonstrations, shanty music, a real steam engine, and violin-making.
There'll even be a full Civil War display courtesy of local tour company Richmond Discoveries.
The Fair incorporates plenty of family fun that's off the beaten track, too. For example, Ackmonster's Chainsaw Art, where America's top professional chainsaw sculptors show their stuff. You'll see a plain log transform into a work of art in just a few minutes. Kids love it!
Naturally, the anchor event of the Fair is the Grand Parade. It features many civic organizations and the winner of the Miss Chesterfield County Fair Pageant, which also takes place during the Fair. Past years have also honored the armed forces with a Military Appreciation Parade.
It's all happening at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds:
10300 Courthouse Road
Chesterfield, Virginia 23832
Admissions are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors aged 60 and up, and $5 for children aged four to 12. Children three and under are admitted free. Rides on the midway require one to five tickets, which can be purchased individually for $1 or as a book of 25 for $20.
