Jamie Foxx's hospitalization led to a lot of concern among his fans, and his daughter Corrine has tried to keep everyone updated with what has been going on so far. The actress shared a post on her Instagram Story where she revealed her father's current condition and wrote:

"Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone's prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!"

Concept of Pickleball and everything else about it

Pickleball refers to a paddle sport that is a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. This sport is ideal for people of all ages and involves a paddle and a plastic ball with a hole.

The game has become popular over the years, and the rules for playing the game are also simple. The rules are the same as those for ping-pong, and they don't take a lot of effort to learn and understand.


It is claimed to be healthy for everyone and may be played inside a court that is smaller than a tennis court. It helps anyone to work on their balance, agility, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination. It can be the best option for those who have discontinued playing tennis for physical issues.

Both indoor and outdoor facilities are available for those who wish to play pickleball. For the outdoor option, a pickleball pole can be installed in any place.
