America’s fastest growing sport celebrates an annual national promotion to bring people of all ages into the game.
To help promote the fastest growing sport in America, USA Pickleball Association along with sports industry companies and organizations have named April “National Pickleball Month.”
Pickleball is a fun, active paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It’s played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. Pickleball uses a paddle and a plastic ball with holes and is played as both singles and doubles.
“Pickleball is just exploding with players and interest,” says USA Pickleball Chief Operating Officer Justin Maloof. “Creating National Pickleball Month for the month of April will help us to promote the sport nationwide to people of all ages, and help to get Americans moving, active and enjoying this fun sport.”
National Pickleball Month is designed to boost all areas of the sport, from bringing more people into the game, to helping pickleball “providers” promote programs and leagues, to making public parks and sports facilities aware of the interest in pickleball in their communities.
“We see this as a ‘rallying point’ to promote the sport throughout the U.S. on the local level,” Maloof says.
Organize a group of your friends and introduce them to pickleball. Help spread the joy and further get the word out about all the great benefits pickleball can provide not just to individuals of all ages, but also to communities.
