If you haven’t heard of pickleball, you are probably not alone. While the sport has been around since 1965, it’s seen rapid growth over the years due to its popularity within community centers, physical education curriculums, YMCA facilities and even retirement homes. According to USA Pickleball, the sport now has nearly 8,500 locations in the United States. The sport was founded in Seattle, Washington one summer when a group of dads were looking to create an activity that was different than the typical summer games for their kids. Pickleball was picked up internationally, and over the years has grown rapidly with international clubs and new national governing bodies created across multiple continents.
