7 Reasons Why You Should Play Pickleball | Pickler Pickleball

Pickleball is a sport with a funny name that is a combination of tennis, badminton, and table tennis, and has rapidly become the fastest growing sport in the United States. Here are 7 reasons why you should join the movement and start playing pickleball today!

  1. Be Part of a Community - Pickleball is much more than just a sport; it is a community. Pickleball and pickleball players are social (both on and off the pickleball court) and inclusive of players from all backgrounds, ages, and skill levels.
  2. Easy to Learn and to Get Better - The rules of pickleball are simple and easy to learn, no matter what your skill level or age. Pickleball is also a sport that you can easily improve at and excel at!

  3. Be Physically Fit - Pickleball will improve your physical fitness (you can burn 600+ calories per hour playing pickleball), and will help with weight loss and weight management. Pickleball also leads to stronger cardiovascular and metabolic health, as well as stronger bones and muscles (in other words, playing pickleball will help you live longer!).
  4. Be Mentally Sharp - Pickleball will also help keep you mentally alert, as the sport involves strategy and social interaction. Pickleball will also give you a stronger, more positive mental state (those endorphins make you happy!).
  5. Play All-Year Round - Pickleball is a sport that you can play both outdoors and indoors, which allows you to play all-year round, no matter the weather!
  6. Inexpensive to Play - Pickleball is relatively inexpensive to play. All you need is a pickleball, a paddle, and a court (which could be in a driveway, a street, or a local public park).
  7. Pure FUN - Most importantly, pickleball is FUN! Pickleball will also lead to lots of laughter, and will give you friends for a lifetime and that extend well-beyond the pickleball court.

Lessons from the Pickleball Court: Referees Are Impactful

by Stacie Townsend

Referees are a part of every sport, and an important part of every sport. Referees are the ones that enforce the rules of the game. They ensure that the players all play by the same set of rules, and instill a sense of confidence in the players and the fans that the right player or team at the end of the game was victorious and that there was no foul play. Learn more on why referees are so impactful to the sport of pickleball!

How to Clean Your Pickleball Paddle

by Stacie Townsend
