Do You Accept the Pickleball Challenge?

News Stacie Townsend 03-02-2020

Did you know that the month of April is National Pickleball Month? In light of the upcoming National Pickleball Month, we challenge you to teach at least 5 other people how to play pickleball before April 1st. This is Pickler’s Pickleball Challenge for you!

According to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA), there are 3.3 million pickleball players in the United States. If each one of the 3.3 million pickleball players accepts and accomplishes Pickler’s Pickleball Challenge, then the pickleball community would have 19.8 million pickleball players by April 1st (3.3 million + (5 people times 3.3 million) = 19.8 million pickleball players), which is more than the number of tennis players in the United States. If we as a pickleball community could all accept and accomplish Pickler’s Pickleball Challenge, then we will really have something to celebrate this April during National Pickleball Month!

So, what do you say? Let’s grow the sport of pickleball!
