  1. Marsha….thanks for wearing the black Atlantic Regional Shirt for the Gold Medal Match! We love you in Maine!

  2. Isn’t it time that the Pickleball community condemned the wearing of clothing that matches the color of the ball. This is just hoping that your opponent doesn’t see the ball as well as they might if the shirt didn’t match the color of the ball. This action totally goes against the spirit of fair play and should be outlawed by the powers that be. Speak up!

  3. I agree with Paul on the clothing color. Have seen it many times- clothing same color as the ball.
    Some of our local tournaments haven’t allowed it. It’s simple and logical: clothing can’t match the ball color. Change the rule.
