Ever wonder what it was like for the very first pickleball players to play the game? Rusty from Pickleball Channel was fortunate enough to get the chance to find out! Watch this short highlight video as Rusty plays our favorite game on the original pickleball court with vintage wooden paddles made by hand in the early 1970’s.  Rusty is lucky enough to play with  founder Barney McCallum’s son, David, and some other great players from Pickle-ball Inc. Watch the competition and experience the fun of playing in the birthplace of the sport!
