Today's article in Sports Illustrated certainly illuminates the growing pains in organizing the fastest growing sport in America – two international governing bodies, two domestic professional tours, two halls of fame, two billionaires committed to professional pickleball teams.
Whether you think the article is a "hit-piece" (see The Dink's e-newsletter) or an eye-opening piece of investigative journalism, it makes for fun reading!
My favorite line? A quote by a former International Federation of Pickleball program director, "Of the hundreds of players I've taught to play, I have never heard This is no fun."
