Pickleball Health

Health Benefits of Pickleball Workouts Revealed

It’s official, Pickleball has huge health and mental health benefits, according to a recent study.

The Apple Heart and Movement study analysed over 250,000 pickleball and tennis workouts recorded via Apple Watches. It compared pickleball and tennis workouts. With pickleball sessions lasting longer than tennis workouts. But tennis workouts were higher intensity (as expected).

Other interesting data includes Pickleball workouts have surpassed tennis workouts for the first time. And pickleball and tennis players had improved mental health with lower rates of depression.

The study is fantastic as it has data to prove that a low-impact sport like pickleball, has great health benefits. And playing pickleball is great for a player’s health and mental wellbeing. Which should hopefully encourage more people to pick up a paddle.

It’s a great story, and it has been picked up via various news outlets.

Pickleball Noise is a “National Issue” in Martha’s Vineyard, USA

Martha’s Vineyard is an exclusive area known for mansions and millionaires. And this little area with 17,000 residents is looking to potentially ban pickleball completely. Some residents don’t like the noise and pickleball has been described as a “National Issue”. So it could potentially be banned.
