A lot of people think pickleball sucks. I’m not one of them…usually.
It was bound to happen.
I’m just amazed it took 13 months.
I showed up for my usual pickleball open play.
And I sucked.
Not only that, I didn’t even have fun.
I spent two hours losing point after point, game after game. Balls sailed long. My body language was pitiful. And the entire time, I kept thinking, “Pickleball is the dumbest game in the world.”
Anyone who knows me or has read this blog knows that’s not how I really feel. As an ambassador for the sport, I think the pros outweigh the cons. But every sordid love affair is entitled to a bad night or two.
Since I know the pickleball haters are out there, let’s examine why people think pickleball sucks.
