Nice Pickleball piece, Justin. As a brand new player -- fit, active and one of your elders, I'm having a ball. I feel like a kid again, and as you say, it's good to trade that iPhone for a Pickleball paddle. My husband and I have been playing twice/week, and find ourselves laughing more and remembering how much fun it is to have FUN!! OFFLINE!! And yes, it's a friendly community of players -- competitive but also supportive, as we try to get that shot while avoiding injury. Thanks for posting this and check out my stories when you have a moment.
