Wednesday marked the first day of the league for the Pickleball Association of the Twin Tiers! But what is Pickleball you might ask? Here's how it works -- two or four players use paddles to hit a ball similar to a wiffle ball, over a net.

The Pickleball Association of the Twin Tiers held the 1st day of the league at Ernie Davis Academy in Elmira.

Bonnie Lindquist said,"The sport really started with the older generation but now the sport has developed into being the fastest growing sport in America. Kids are learning in gym class. The first U.S. Open in Pickleball was last year.  There's professional Pickleball players and there's Pickleball actually all over the world now. It's gonna be an Olympic sport."
