So it was only a matter of time before someone made a VR game based on the hit racket/paddle activity.

Available now via App Lab, Playing Pickleball promises an authentic Pickleball experience on Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro headsets. According to the description, the game features realistic physics and sounds based on actual Pickleball gameplay, as well as scoring and rules taken directly from the USA Pickleball Association’s official rulebook.

If you’ve never played Pickleball before, the game is designed to be easy to pick up but hard to master. According to website, Playing Pickleball has a built-in tutorial designed to teach you the basics. Once you’ve mastered the game, compete in causal and ranked matches against artificial intelligence (AI) opponents as well as other players via online multiplayer.
