Pickleball Jokes FAQs
Here are some frequently asked questions about pickleball and pickleball jokes.
What’s a good pickleball joke?
In pickleball, to err is human; to place the blame on someone else is doubles.
Why is pickleball so popular and addictive?
The sport of pickleball is quickly learned because the rules are simple. It doesn’t take a lot of training to compete. A background in tennis, ping-pong, squash, or racquetball shortens the learning curve. It’s fun and competitive while not being as challenging from a power and endurance aspect as other sports.
Because the court is smaller than tennis, pickleball is more conversational – folks can hear you better because of proximity.
How did pickleball get its name?
There are two origin stories for the name “pickleball”:
1.) Its name is derived from one of the sports inventor’s dogs, named “Pickles.”
2.) One of the inventor’s wives thought, “the combination of different sports reminded me of the pickle boat in crew where oarsmen were chosen from the leftovers of other boats.” In the first rendition of pickleball, players used a wide assortment of makeshift paddles, including modified ping-pong paddles and tennis racquets.
Who knows? Both stories may be true.
