Oh man…where did this all begin? If we are being technical then the first time I was introduced to pickleball had to be in high school, around 2013/14. I have two distinct memories from that experience.
- I was definitely playing the game wrong
- We all thought that the wood paddles were better than the “Plastic” ones
After high school, I didn’t play or even think about pickleball for at least 2 or 3 years until one day my boss (who also happens to be my best friend’s dad) invited me out to come play with him and my friend. At the time I just figured “Why not?”. I saw it as an opportunity to get out and exercise while strengthening the relationship between me and my new boss.
After that I was hooked, we started playing more and more, and eventually getting to where we are now - playing 2-3 times a week. There is no question that my pickleball journey is still in its infancy and I am sooo excited to see where it goes.
Pickleball has taken me on a very interesting ride over the past couple of years. I have met so many great people through pickleball that I would have most likely never run in to, including our fearless leader @Jordan and now all of you! I wish I had more to say in this story but the majority of it is still being written! I foresee a lot of growth, learning experiences, and tournaments in my future as well
Thank you all for being here helping to grow this amazing past time we all enjoy so much I can’t wait to see how far pickleball goes!
