I have a new addiction. It started in August. It’s called pickleball. Have you heard of it? It’s the fastest growing sport in the country. And for good reason!

Pickleball is a lot like doubles tennis, but it is played on a badminton size court with paddles and a whiffle ball. It is great exercise and super satisfying. The smaller court caters to aging tennis players and the rules, which reduce the server’s advantage among other things, allow players at differing levels to have fun playing together. There are lots of reasons to like this game!

Three months ago, I knew nothing about pickleball and had only heard the name. Now I’m totally hooked.

So why am I telling you this? Because:

  1. New experiences are always good.
  2. You are never too old or too busy to change. You just gotta wanna!
  3. How can you ‘wanna’, if you don’t know something exists?
  4. You might want to give pickleball a try! (places to play near you)

Embrace the next opportunity to try something new!
