“Pickleball Goes Pro” on ABC Radio
Way back on September 17, as the Aussie MLP announcements were happening, ABC Radio broadcast a chat about Pickleball. Well, it has just been released online. If you missed it, Lisa Leong the presenter for Victorian Sundays had a chat with Beefy Blake about Pickleball, starting with the premise “What is all the fuss about”. It’s an interesting chat, ranging from Pickleball nudists and Pickleball noise complaints. Not a bad chat if you have 15 minutes to spare.

Introducing The Pickleball Shed in Gosford, NSW
Dennis Gordge, a retired designer and builder fell in love with pickleball in 2022 after he retired. He became addicted and built a full-sized pickleball court in his shed. Thus was born, the Pickleball Shed! Dennis also built multiple “stations” around the court for players to practice their skills. And now, he shares his love of pickleball by teaching others in his Pickleball shed. What a legend!
It’s a great idea, and the Bros love reporting these smaller Australian stories. The link also has details if you want to contact Dennis to find out more about the Pickleball Shed.

Sharapova Pickleball Announcement for Pickleball Slam 2
OK, not exactly new news as the Aussie Pickleball Bros reported on Sharapova playing in the Pickleball Slam 2 alongside John McEnroe. Sharapova dropped a video about the tournament, and of course, McEnroe steals the show. These retired tennis players all love Pickleball (except McEnroe who openly dislikes it). but it is interesting, that they are all coming back to play pickleball. Should be a great match,

Pickleball and Hybrid Variations the Future of Sport
Hybrid sports are a thing, and the Bros have been reporting on “the next pickleball” almost every week. Where Pickleball is “the lovechild between tennis and badminton”, these sports are gaining traction. And what is considered sport, is constantly evolving. An interesting article on hybrid sports, and their place in a world of purists that hate them (cough cough – tennis fans).
A really nice article on Pickleball and Hybrid Sports via the LA Times.
Pistachios, the Perfect Pickleball Fuel.
Looking for a pre or post-game snack? Pistachios may be just what you need. Kelly Jones, a certified sports dietician recommends pistachios, as they have fat, fiber, and protein. She describes a carb-only snack as a “missed opportunity”. Pistachios are a “complete” protein, which means they provide all of the essential amino acids in adequate amounts. Some nice tips in this article.

Pickleball at the Truck Bar`
Merle McKenzie, the owner of the Truck Bar has built new pickleball courts at the Higganum, Connecticut location. There is no story here, but always fascinating where pickleball courts are popping up because of their small size. People can get creative and sneak a court somewhere, even in truck-themed bars. Worth taking a look at the photos of this bar, great stuff.
There are some great images if you follow the link Pickleball at the Truck Bar.
Luka Doncic Floating Pickleball Court
If Truck Bars aren’t your thing, this amazing image of Pickleball Paradise has been doing the rounds online. Take a look at a floating Pickleball court. It belongs to Luka Doncic, a professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks. The court is on Lake Bled, Slovenia. And it is glorious.
