Newcomers to the site should note the pickleball book "chapters" in the left column and the repository of expert articles and videos in the right column.

About the Site

This blog was started in November 2015 with the purpose of helping to grow pickleball in the Hendersonville, NC area. It was focused on local issues and skills/strategies to develop players' abilities. That remains the focal points, but the format of the site has changed.

I quickly recognized that a blog was limited in its usefulness to a reader. The blog was written to keep building on early posts but those posts got buried pages deep. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that a "book" was the best way to build a knowledge base. 

A Pickleball Life Book in a Blog

Please note the left column of the blog. It contains chapters of A Pickleball Life that build up from a starting chapter of basic pickleball knowledge through chapters of successive shots. Each chapter includes blog posts about skills, strategies, footwork, and teamwork related to the chapter's topics. For example, when a reader wants more information on The Third Shot, he can click on Chapter 4 and all relevant posts are shown. If that reader has a favorite expert, I indicate whether that post utilizes an expert source.

Resources - Expert Articles and Videos

On the subject of experts, on-line information is exploding with new sources. The site contains a repository of expert videos and articles so readers have a central location from where to seek such information. It is located at the top of the right-hand column and is labelled "Resources". It includes links to Sarah Ansboury, Mark Renneson, Pickleball Channel, RV Picklers, and many other expert advice sites.

I hope you like the site and find it easy to navigate. Please provide feedback to make it better.
