The Viral Sport of Pickleball
It seems that everyone is suddenly playing pickleball. Despite its recent popularity, the sport has actually been around for 60 years! What first started as a spontaneous family game, pickleball, is now a viral activity that has taken over team-building, family reunions, and sunny weekends.
The History of Pickleball
The first game of pickleball was played by Joel Pritchard and Bill Bell in 1965. During a summer family gathering, the group found themselves bored with a badminton court without racquets. Pritchard and Bell suggested ping-pong paddles and a perforated plastic ball instead. The game quickly became popular amongst their friends and was officially incorporated in 1972. Now, over 50 years later, the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) has listed pickleball as the fastest-growing sport in America.
Why is Pickleball so Popular?
For three consecutive years, pickleball has been ranked as the fastest-growing sport in America. So why is pickleball so popular all of a sudden?
The surge in pickleball players is primarily due to how easy it is to learn and play. Described as a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, pickleball rules are simple to learn, making it an excellent group activity. You don’t need a lot of equipment or training to participate, and many pickleball courts offer affordable rentals.
In addition, pickleball is a fun way to exercise that doesn’t put too much strain on the body, making it an accessible sport for people of all ages. Friends and families are posting photos of pickleball games on social media, bringing even more attention to the sport.
How Did Pickleball Get Its Name?
Joel Pritchard and Bill Bell came up with the name ‘pickleball’ after the local sailing contests. In sailing terms, the pickle boat is the last boat to finish a race.
After the game gained national popularity, rumors circulated that the sport was named after the Pritchards’ dog, Pickles. However, the family debunked this gossip, sharing that Pickles didn’t join the family until 1968, 3 years after pickleball was created.
