    Some of use our computer at work or somewhere else where it would not be appropriate to turn on our computer’s sound. Your video provided is good but could you also provide a text article so I and others like me could be informed about Pickleball in the Olympics (or anything else)

    Thanks in advance… Bob

      Hi Bob! The best way to see what’s be said in the video without turning on the volume is to click on the little box with the letters cc in it. This box stands for the closed captions that accompany every video. Then you will be able to read what is being said and no volume problems at work. Thanks for watching!!

    We had a ball at the Open in Naples on Monday! Made at least one day every year. Everyone is so helpful, and every match, not just the ones on center court are great to watch!
