  1. Thank you for the easy tips to getting Pickleball started. I finally retired and have the time to play and organize a club of players,

  2. Easy to get pickleball going. We went to a local school and chatted with the PE teacher and asked her if she would like us to come in and do a pb unit for her, two weeks long. When I was teaching I loved to have clinicians and people come in and take some classes. It gave the kids a break from me and myself a welcome break. And so we now do a two week unit every winter at the middle school. Too easy and the kids love it.

  3. I personally have cherished memories of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the greater Boston area. From the mid 70s and early 80s we made several trips when visiting from NY and later from the west coast where we live. It is singularly beautiful!
    Pickleball wasn’t as well known and proliferous back then, as it now is, but apparently it’s catching on now. I know that once it takes root, dedicated courts will quickly begin to appear. Usually Tennis courts get converted rapidly into PB courts, especially if they’re sitting idle or barely utilized. The sport enjoys huge support from the USAPA and affiliated brands that manufacture equipment as you are aware. I’d imagine with this kind of association with stars like Andy Roddick and others that are a brand unto themselves with respective foundations, the USAPA may very well gain a status such as the USTA. It may take some time and a ton of effort by the right entities/organizations but there’s no lack of those as it now stands. It has seemingly grown leaps and bounds literally overnight to the point it is now. I am a former Tennis and Badminton player but I’m truly enjoying all the benefits because of a couple of injuries. Good luck to all you guys in achieving your goals. Cheers!

  4. It has been a struggle for us in this small town in western Pennsylvania to get pickleball going. The tennis players balked at having pickle ball lines painted on their tennis courts saying pickleball is a fad. The city is financially strapped and those who play go to the local YMCA where the lines are not correct, leaving only 18 inches from the back foul line to a cement wall. Two courts are on half of a gym.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
