I had never heard of pickleball until fall of 2016. I watched a few times at our local YMCA, and then signed up for a class. Everyone there was so welcoming and nice. They showed me how to keep score and the basic rules. Now I have been playing at least three times a week, and LOVE it! I have also traveled to other states with my paddle and was able to just show up and join in on the fun. What I noticed is that wherever I played, people were just as friendly and they all love pickleball. We decided to create this site so people could easily find players to play with, find a court, and just talk about all things pickleball!
