Ipswitch “have a crack” at Pickleball

The people of Ipswitch, in South East Queensland, are giving Pickleball a go. The Ipswitch Indoor Sports Centre has decided to “have a crack at” pickleball. Its popularity in the States was a deciding factor for the Sport, and it has since increased to two nights a week at the Centre. I say this every week, but it’s always great to see Pickleball get picked up in new parts of Australia.

Amputee addicted to Pickleball – Wears out his carbon-fiber foot

Buddy Hall lost his leg in a tree-grinding accident in 1998. And 25 years later, this Tampa Florida resident plays pickleball every day, sometimes twice a day. After his accident, he played various sports and finally played pickleball and was hooked. And we have to mention, he has to replace his carbon fiber foot every 6-10 months, even though it has a 3-year guarantee. So you could imagine the level of pickleball playing coming from the man. Amazing story!

Pickleball Mini-Dress… Ohh-La-laa

Not really Pickleball News, but an amusing observation. Designer clothes are now adding the word “pickleball” to outfits that are “designed with athletic activities in mind.” I’ll defer to the ladies that play pickleball, and they can tell me if that orange ensemble would help or hinder their pickleball game. And I wonder how many paddles that sports bag can hold…

Pickleball Insanity

Rattlesnakes on a Plane Pickleball Court

In Littleton, Colarado, the scorching hot brings out all types of critters. In this example, the critter was a Rattlesnake. And he appeared on a pickleball court while some local pickle ballers were playing a game. Sure, it slithered away eventually but these brave souls continued playing, with the rattlesnake nearby. Brave or Insane? Either/Or.

Watch the news report on the Pickleball Rattlesnake in the linked video.
