The Surprising Benefits of PickleballPosted on June 13, 2022 by shieldsandboris
What is the news in sports? Pickleball. Pickleball has become an increasingly popular sport for people of all ages, including seniors. It is a mixture between ping pong and tennis, played on a smaller court to make exercising fun, particularly for active older adults. By checking on the internet, a team nearby may be found, as well as the simple, easily learned rules of the game. Pickleball players may find that as well as exercise, they are making new friends while having fun in the process, and unlike other sports, frustration and failure are not in the mix. Many benefits can be found in pickleball playing as well.
- Being Healthy: Lowered risk of heart disease may be achieved by just one hour of Pickleball played three days a week. It can improve blood pressure and cardio-respiratory functions, while lowering cholesterol for middle-aged and older adults.
- Fighting Depression: Depression can improve by any exercise routine, including Pickleball. Regular exercise can help people, especially those moving into retirement or later years, avoid negative feelings that sometimes impair their later lives. Activities such as Pickleball give players time to work, talk, laugh, and enjoy the time spent, and all of this makes the time fun and beneficial.
- Exercising Regularly: Exercise can be an addictive lifestyle change. Doing any activity has benefits that include gaining knowledge, skills and new friendships, as well as a change in the lifestyle that makes coming back another day something to look forward to. Many adults don’t get the recommended physical activity needed. Any activity that can improve the time exercising is a heathy change of lifestyle.
Lively, Not Lonely: Pickleball keeps players socializing and therefore, less lonely. Pickleball is played in groups of two, four, or more players, so the social aspect is great, and something that will keep you wanting more. Looking forward to seeing friends, knowing someone is waiting for you, can add a sense of responsibility and need. It may even extend to lunch or a movie later.
- Staying Independent: Regular exercise can keep your body healthier longer. Pickleball can help with balance, reflexes, and range of motion, all of which will mean a healthier body, which will make doing everyday chores easier.
Pickleball, as with many exercises, can be the difference between needing help to survive or leading a live independently in your own home. Contact your local recreation center to find a pickleball game near you.
