Although pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the world, I come across more people that have not heard of our great sport than those that have. As soon as I mention pickleball, a puzzled look appears across their face and the next words out of their mouth are: “What is pickleball?”

Pickleball? You haven’t heard of pickleball yet? Well, it’s the fastest growing sport in the world. People say it is a mix of tennis, ping pong and badminton. You would love it! You have to come out and play with me sometime!
