What Is Your Pickleball Elevator Pitch?

News Stacie Townsend 05-12-2018

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?”
Boom. I now have a captive audience with about a 30-second window to educate and hopefully instigate my audience to become pickleball’s newest player (or even newest pickleball fanatic!). The next 30 seconds for me usually goes something like:

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!

My goal is always to get people out on the pickleball courts. Once they do—like the rest of us—they are hooked!
