If volleyball, badminton and tennis had a baby, it would be pickleball and it would be the greatest baby ever.

Summer is officially here and this summer, there are loads of fun things to do in Rockford.

One of those things is to play pickleball, outdoors or indoors thanks to the Rockford Park District.

While I sort of knew what the sport entailed, I needed a lesson, so I took a trip to the UW Health Sports Factory where Chris, Richard and Derek taught me the ins and outs of this super fun game perfect for the entire family.

If you want to teach me how to do something, just let me know on Facebook, on Twitter or on YouTube.
