“I was serving all wrong, and the video fixed my serves, and they are now great. My body was positioned incorrectly, and this video helped me out tremendously.
I watched a ton of free videos online on serving and none of them worked. Your videos are great, and it doesn’t hurt the Vivian is smoking hot!”
For the record, I confirmed that it didn’t come from Vivian’s husband.
5. “In three to four years, pickleball will be bigger than golf and it won’t even be close.”

They started their Junior Certification Teaching Program a few years ago. It allows players under 21 to get certified under the condition that a current IPTPA member mentors them until they become eligible. Congrats to the young members that were recently certified.

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.
The most exciting part of pickleball for me is the social and welcoming attitude of the sport. No other game has players that want you to succeed and feel like a part of a group or family like it does.
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.
