What People Are Saying
“I am 88 years old, have two artificial knees, two artificial hips, have been playing 4 years, and I love the game.

“Due to neck and shoulder injuries, I had to resign from my job of 16 years. I was introduced to pickleball at one of the most challenging times in my life. I have been forever changed by the sport. Pickleball helped me re-discover who I am and what I stand for. Pickleball is more than just a sport, it has the potential to change your life.”Noel C.
“I was originally told that Pickleball was a great way to get my father-in-law out and active with other athletic seniors. After my first time out, I was instantly addicted and find myself playing about 3+ times per week. I have since introduced it to my wife, daughter (11 yrs old) and a few of my friends who have fell in love with the sport as well.”Mark M.
