Global Pickleball News

Pickleball Civil War

The Bros reported on this Pickleball News last week. It seems like this war between the Pickleball Players Association (PPA) and Major League Pickleball (MLP) is heating up. A bidding war has broken out for exclusive rights to these players. This was after an agreement that players could play for either league. The MLP is throwing crazy cash at players and they are signing up. And now, “All hell has broken loose”. It’s a really interesting article. It has first-hand accounts from the organisations and players caught in the middle.

Jack Sock, retiring from Pro Tennis to play Pickleball

Jack Sock, who achieved a career-high ranking of Number 8 in singles and number 2 in doubles, has jumped ship. He is pursuing a career with the Professional Pickleball League (PPA). Sock is looking to earn in the high six figures. And his tennis career earnings exceed 11 million.

Jack is a successful tennis player, although not a big gun in the tennis world. His switch to pickleball is another crack in the wall, and surely, more tennis players will jump over at some point. Especially as older players start to retire from tennis. Interesting times in Pickleball World.

New Pickleball Score Tracker on Apple Watch

Keeping track of the score in a pickleball game can be difficult. In the heat of a pickleball battle, it’s not unusual for someone to ask… “What’s the score?”.

Well, there is now an App for that. The Pickleball Score Tracker is a fantastic new App that has surfaced on Product Hunt. It’s only available on Apple Watch at the moment as a prototype, but the idea is great. Before you play, start the game on your watch. Swipe up or down to allocate points to you or your opponent. It’s that easy!

What a simple but great idea. It is free and worth a try if you own an Apple Watch. And you can leave feedback for the creators as they improve the product. Very cool.

Follow this link to the Pickleball Score Tracker via the Product Hunt Page. And the App can be found on the Apple Watch store.

Pickleball Engagement Party

Olivia Culpos, model, actress, and internet celebrity loves a bit of pickleball. So much so, that she had a few games during her engagement party. She had a court set up and said “Everyone loved it”. And the idea of dressing up for an engagement party, and then playing pickleball is great.
