My friend and I attended a holiday boutique last year and this game, Sandy Pickle, was set up in parking lot with some turf. We took the paddles and played for a bit and really enjoyed ourselves. She purchased it for her husband for Christmas and it’s been sitting in a box ever since. We pulled it out of the box for the first time in Mexico and it was a really fun beach game. It’s a cross between pickle ball (which we enjoy) and badminton – it helps that our family has an interest in racket sports.

The wind was a little aggressive while we were trying to play which made it that much more entertaining because you really had no idea where the ball was going! Serving from one side you would always hit it out and serving from the other, it would often fall into the net. This game is a keeper!
