Malta pickleball team brings home silver, bronze in Spanish Open

Malta’s first-ever pickleball team had a near-perfect start to their international commitments as they won silver in the ladies’ doubles, and bronze in the men’s doubles over the weekend at the Spanish Open.

Steffi Pace, who spearheaded the group and was part of the ladies duo had told the Times of Malta ahead of the tournament that the side’s expectations were not set high, however, such a result will definitely be a shot in the arm for future competitions.

Pickleball Xiex?

Trust us, we had the same reaction. We recently discovered that pickleball is an actual sport and it’s just made it’s way to Malta! Part-badminton, part-traditional tennis meets table tennis, pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court by 2 or 4 players using solid wooden paddles or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball over a (slightly lower) tennis net.
