POP Tennis: Paddle Tennis Renewed

It's a sport that's been around for 100 years but now there's a push to make it new again.

Don't call it paddle tennis, now it's POP tennis.

Pop tennis Hall of famer Ken Lindner is the co-founder of the U.S. Pop tennis association, he says "this is an effort to make the sport cohesive. Some places call it paddle tennis other cities it's called something else so this eliminates sport confusion."

It's different from traditional tennis, with smaller padded rackets, a lower net, and shrunken court. The ball is also less lively making it easier for people to play.

There's also a movement to make this an Olympic sport since it's been in the competitive arena for years.
