Pickleballist is officially live! Let's goooooo!

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step, right?

Well, Pickleballist finally launched yesterday, on March 29th, which was my one-year anniversary of the day that I first picked up a pickleball paddle! #bestyearever

It’s taken me ten months to launch this “one single step” but I sure hope it will be a valuable asset to help pickleball players around the world to more easily connect, and to grow the game! I wrote a post a few days ago which more clearly outlines what Pickleballist is all about. If you’re like me and want to truly understand the big picture here, please check out this other post: What is Pickleballist?

I wanted to kick off the week with a few announcements…

First off, we send our love to all those who are or have family/loved ones that have been affected by COVID-19. This is a beast. Hopefully, we can fight off this thing soon!

This week might be a little longer than usual, so fair warning! PS… feel free, at any time, to start your own new topic, here in the #pickleball-discussions category.

Announcement 1:

To kick off the Pickleballist launch, we are doing 7 Days of Pickleball Giveaways, on our Instagram account so be sure to check it out over at https://instagram.com/pickleballist

Announcement 2:

Now that we are live and out of the beta period, I encourage every Pickleballist to take a moment to :wave: Introduce yourself… or just say “Hello!” to the rest of the community! (just tap/click that link!)
