Fun, social and active sport takes SLO County by storm
Pickleball was once called “the fastest growing sport in the country you’ve never heard of.” Not anymore. This very fun, very social, very ‘active’ game has grown exponentially since it was first introduced in 1965.
Developed by Washington State representative and eventual Lt. Governor, Joel Pritchard, the name of the sport originated, according to urban legend, in honor of Pritchard’s dog, Pickles, who would chase any errant balls and return them...most of the time.
