Erin explains the game’s history, its quirky rules, and an easy way to handle the tricky scoring system. She suggests ways to get involved in games, where to find courts, the right equipment needed, and the clothes to wear. Erin, a “missionary for the sport,” assures listeners a tennis background isn’t necessary, it’s never too late to take up the game, and pickleball is an ageless sport.

Pickleball is affordable, accessible, easy to pick up, and a terrific way to meet people and make friends.

Seventy-one-year-old Erin explains why we should be watchful that our lives don’t become smaller as we age.
