Indoor pickleball courts

On Saturday I went to visit the new community center and play pickleball.   

We have half the basketball court which affords us three pickleball courts.  I love the fact that it's indoors and out of the elements but the lines can be confusing.

The floor is marked already for basketball and then there are the additional lines taped on for pickleball.  That in itself is confusing but consider this....  the side boundaries are the second yellow line, the back boundaries are the second yellow line on one side of the gym and the white line on the other side.

The game already has enough quirks and is played primarily by seniors and our memory is challenged by that alone, much less which lines are which.  There is talk that they will be painting actual pickleball lines in the future.

But for me, this is enough and I had a delightful three hours of play since there were just the right number of people that you never needed to sit a game out.

I may not be able to walk without pain for a day or two while my body adjusts, but at that moment I was totally blissed out!

Long Live the Queen of Pickleball  


  1. Isn't it like life that those lines are constantly changing?

  2. This sounds like so much fun, but WHAT IS pickleball? I never heard of it before you mentioned it. I'm so glad that things seem to be working out okay in your new campground. It makes your stay there so much more enjoyable. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. I would love to know more about this "Pickleball", too.
