CLEARWATER, Fla. — This summer you may see a new game being played at beaches, parks and backyards throughout the Tampa Bay area. It’s called Jazzminton, it’s like badminton or pickleball but instead of hitting back and forth over a net, you hit through the net. The idea of Jazzminton has been volleyed around by creator Steven Mueller for the past four years. Mueller is a Switzerland native who now lives in Clearwater. “I am a mechanical engineer and from that point, I was very creative, I like to invent things,” said Mueller. He was looking for a game paddling a birdie or ball that didn’t need a court.He also wanted something that was durable yet easy to assemble and transport. “It should hold up five to 10 years easy with a good amount of usage,” said Mueller. It was also important that it didn’t take up a lot of space, you can even play in the living room.
“When you look at tennis, you got to find a tennis court, you have to drive somewhere,” said Mueller.
