  1. Well done Rusty and the rest of the Pickleball Channel Team!!! Fantastic Video!

    • Thanks so much for watching and sharing. Glad you liked it. It was good seeing you briefly at the tourney. Thanks for what you have done for the sport over the years.

  2. Great Job Rusty…………I love walking by you at the Open and saying Hi. No matter how busy you are you say HI. This is my second year at the open and it gets better and better every year. I am from Westchester County, NY (retired teacher in the Bronx) and I am now addicted to this game. We are fighting very hard to get dedicated Pickleball Courts outside and get many more people involved. Thanks to your show we can get newbies more involved! You are the Bomb!

    • Lynne, Thank you so very very much for your kind words and encouragement. We try very hard to be helpful and grow the sport of pickleball overall. Thanks for giving a shout out and saying hi at the US Open. Yes we were running around a whole bunch, but glad I was at least able to be friendly LOL. Best wishes to you all in your journey to get courts. Hang in there and be persistent and friendly. We have found that pickleball groups that genuinely want to work with their communities to help the community have the best results. They will eventually see that it is good for both young and old. And one of the best overall investments in recreation per square foot for any community. All the best. Keep on Playing!
