Hi everybody,

The goal of Quick Pickle has always been to learn and get better at pickleball in a fun and entertaining way.  Hopefully, these blogs or our videos have made you a better player, made you laugh or at least smile.

I was very hesitant to share my story below because of how raw and personal it is, but if it can help one person then it is worth it.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads!  This is the one day of the year that you get all the attention or maybe the day you don’t want any.  “I’ll be in my shed building a top secret…thing!”

Every Dad celebrates it a little differently- dinner with the family, a phone call from your kids, sitting in the backyard with a cocktail or even better, a day of pickleball.

Never has a sport come onto the national scene and grown as quickly as pickleball.  As most people that play the sport know, finding a consistent and available location to play is the drawback to the explosion.  Even with an estimated 6,000 places to play it can be difficult finding courts nearby.  Cities, towns and recreation centers are trying to accommodate players with new courts, but that requires funding.
