Pickleball is trying to catch up to the professionalism of other sports. And now it is one step closer with the addition of Jim Ramsey as the lead statistician for the Professional Pickleball Association’s broadcast. It is an interesting episode as Jim talks about what he keeps track of during a live match and also when he later reviews the video.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How Jim became the official statistician of the Professional Pickleball Association
  • What are the challenges in keeping statistics during a live television broadcast
  • What surprises Jim about the professional game
  • What statistics he keeps and how they are evolving
  • How the third shot drop versus drive differs between women’s, men’s, and the mixed division
  • What are the secondary statistics he is keeping, and how does he track them
