If you have ever visited a local pickleball court, you have probably been pleasantly surprised by the welcoming embrace of the people that play. The average pickleball player loves the sport (sometimes to the point of addiction) and equally loves to introduce it to new players as well. You are encouraged to visit the 20th Street Courts during their open play hours or sign up for a free clinic to see how fun / life changing this sport and its community of great people can be.
I am 88 years old, have two artificial knees, two artificial hips, have been playing 4 years, and I love the game. I played tennis for decades, but I lost all my partners when they died or went to retirement homes. Since pickleball is played on much smaller courts than tennis, I can still maneuver to hit the ball.
At some point in our lives, we look for something more, something that inspires us, something that makes a difference in the world. I have been on a quest for this ‘something’. I have succeeded and failed in many endeavors but never found my ‘something’. In 2016, I had to resign from my job of 16 years to recover from several neck and shoulder surgeries. It took this life altering injury for me to find my ‘something’: PICKLEBALL. 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.
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. This has been a great sport to learn with my wife, daughter and father-in-law. Everyone has a great time and we love the people we meet. I can’t believe how much fun we all have and how quickly everyone picked up the basics.
