Pickleball has become a passion for me since 2011 but I first learned about it back in my college days in the late 1980’s @ Lipscomb University. We could not get enough of it then even playing with wooden paddles! I would’ve continued to play if I’d only known it was more than a PE game and that adults played this sport as well. But I rediscovered it at a rec center & have been playing tourneys all over the USA since 2011.
