A few weeks ago, I paved an area in my backyard for my RV.  This space along with part of my driveway doubles as my practice court for pickleball.  The court is regulation length at 44 feet but only 12 feet wide rather than 20 feet wide.  It’s great for practice or a game of...

Tennis elbow is something I never thought I would experience.  I played racquetball for 10+ years and never had elbow problems.  However, a few years ago I noticed my elbow hurting while sitting at my desk.  Seriously?  I was getting tennis elbow from using my computer mouse?  I might have thought my elbow problem was...

When I first started playing Pickleball, I’d just grab my paddle and go to the courts.  Balls were supplied by the facilities and the nets were already set up.  I didn’t really need a bag.  However, as I purchased shoes for playing indoor and outdoor, I needed to make sure I had the right shoes...
