Don't forget the allegedly fastest growing sport in America.


which is pickle ball. It is primarily played by seniors, but of course can be played by all. It can be setup on indoor or outdoor basketball and tennis courts.

If you have never tried it and get a chance, I think you will like it. Doubles is the primary format. Many recreation centers and YMCA's have it. It requires hand eye coordination and quickness, but with the smaller court and slower whiffle ball there is much less running and movement, sort of like ping pong, , which is probably why Seniors like it.

Of course I am not saying that it will ever become a varsity college sport.
