Pickleball has affected recreational players' lives in addition to that of professional players. It's what frequently gives retired professional athletes who outgrew their prior sports a fresh zeal. It even saved Sutton Howard's life in one instance. Though it may sound corny to say, pickleball enthusiasts all around the world are gradually elevating the game's significance.
Undoubtedly, Catherine Parenteau has been thinking when she tweeted, “Feeling sentimental… What’s a pickleball memory that made you realize it was more than just a sport?”
After that, a tonne of brief anecdotes and instances where pickleball brightened someone's day were posted in the comment area.
“When your pickleball partners become your friends,” said Manuela Sarrazin.
One important thing that kept coming up was the inability to play pickleball alone. You must communicate with those in your immediate vicinity. Since you and your pickleball partner already have an interest in the same activity, it can be very simple to become friends.
“Putting my paddle up at my first open play not knowing anyone and realizing that I just overcame so much anxiety and self-doubt,” wrote Adrian Lesoning.
“Recovering from medical conditions to be able to compete with my mom,” said Ella Cosma.
“First tournament that my daughter and I played in, which was two months after a successful heart ablation at the Cleveland Clinic – God is great!” added Amy Murray.
“My dad and I are becoming closer than we ever have before while learning and playing this beautiful game,” said Josh Hatz.
“I was stuck in a job that I hated and made me super depressed. Pickleball was the only thing that kept me going,” wrote Amy Tai Mulkey.
