The Dawsons aren’t planning on giving up tennis, but by adding pickleball, they’ve given their tennis club new life and have created a unique community that opens doors for additional opportunity and community for BOTH sports.

  1. Great video! So informative.

  2. Stephanie Santangelo

    This video was spot on! My husband and I have played for about ten years! And the people we have meet from California, Utah, Arizona and up State New York. Are all fantastic people. And it is something we have seen people do from the age of 10 to 94. It makes you feel happy. Thanks the Saint family

  3. What a wonderful piece. Thank you!

  4. We love Pickleball here in Virginia Beach, VA. “Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. 70% of the people who play are over 60 which means two things 1 – they are old enough to know how to act in public (i.e. friendly) for the most part. 2 – no one can remember the score.

    Where I play (the Bow Creek Rec Center) we say “I didn’t come here to win, I came here to play.”
