  1. Where do I go to begin playing Pickleball. I am a tennis player, but would like to learn Pickleball also I have played 3 or 4 times in the past year and think it would be something I’d like.

    • Hi Yvonne, I recommend going to usapa.org and looking at their “Places to Play Pickleball” directory. You’ll be able to look at options by state and can see if anything is in your area. Alternatively, you can contact the USAPA ambassadors listed on this page. Typically they will be happy to help newbies find a place to play or recommend other resources. Best of luck!

  2. Hi! My advice to hardcore and recreational Picklers is to try to meet in the middle somewhere. Good players to be accessible and beginner players to reach out to each other.
    The very nature of the game/sport enhances popularity so everyone should have all they need to enjoy it to the fullest. Promote healthy play including the fun play with socialization. No one, regardless of level of play should have exclusivity, although some may disagree.
    The key word is maximize your experience, both outdoors and indoors. Go, Pickle it!

  3. I am trying to buy a pair of shoes and you won’t give me my password when I tell you I forgot it. You give me an address that takes me in a circle and I can get nothing done. Help!!
