Step 1: Find the nearest public pickleball court by using USA Pickleball’s Places 2 Play website at https://www.places2play.org/, or reach out to your nearest USA Pickleball ambassador through USA Pickleball’s website at https://www.memberleap.com/members/directory/search_USAPA.php?ambassadors.

Step 2: Say hello to the pickleball players (or, if you’re shy, stare with friendly curiosity for a few minutes), and wait to be invited onto a pickleball court.

Step 3: Say YES to playing pickleball, and learn from those who already love the sport.

And, if you are a beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, or advanced pickleball player looking to improve your pickleball skills, check out Pickler's pickleball collection of over 140 video lessons (or over 7 hours of lessons!), as well as a corresponding e-book, that breaks down every aspect of the sport of pickleball, including pickleball mechanics, fundamentals, strategy, advanced concepts, and drills.
