Pickleball in the Philippines

PickleballCentral loves all its customers, especially our new walk-in customers.

Look familiar?

Patrick Cantor walked in one Saturday afternoon and tried out some paddles on our new indoor pickleball court.  He purchased a Magnum Graphite Stealth paddle and came back a couple of weeks later with his wife.  She selected a pink Graphite Z5 paddle.  The third time Patrick visited he bought a PickleNet Portable Net System and said he would be taking it with him on his next trip to the Philippines!

Here’s Patrick’s Pickleball to the Philippines story:

I came to the U. S. as a 5-year-old when my parents immigrated to the United States on work visas.  I grew up in the Renton area and started playing pickleball around the time I finished high school.  After I started college, I played at the University of Washington.

After 20 years, I’m playing pickleball again.  I’ve found Pickleball to be an “addictive” sport, in the good habit-forming sense of the word.  It is a way to stay in shape and be social with friends who also like to play. Just before I went on vacation, I bought 4 wooden paddles and a badminton net to use in the Philippines.   Before I introduced Pickleball in the Philippines, no one knew about it.  When I showed my friends how to play, they picked it up pretty fast.   Here are a couple of pictures that show the court being set up. 

I travel to the Philippines every year.  The net system I bought this month will go with me on my next trip.

Thanks, Patrick, for sharing your story with us.  We love hearing about how pickleball is taking over the world.   😉 Anna

    • Hi Rey, I’m sorry I don’t know where the pickleball court is in the Philippines. I did some research but couldn’t come up with an answer. I will contact our customer from the Philippines and ask him. I’ll update you as soon as I get an answer. – Anna
