I was first introduced to the lovely game of Pickleball back in 2014. I played a couple of times with some co workers and thought it was fun but didn’t do anything more with it. Fast forward to August of 2018, I was invited to play it with my brother in law. From that moment on I have been hooked.
Throughout my life I have always enjoyed paddle or racquet sports. I grew up playing Ping Pong, and played a year of Tennis on my High School team. After my mission I played a fair amount of racquet ball throughout college. It is a night and day difference between the love I have for those sports verses the love I have for Pickleball.
Pickleball is truly amazing! I am looking forward to the day when my children are old enough to start competing with me in tournaments. One of my one year old’s first words was Pickleball and before he would enjoy watching anything else on the TV he would always be glued when a Pickleball match was playing on YouTube. I’m very much looking forward to a long relationship with the fantastic sport.
