Guess who plays pickleball?

“We like to watch movies, we go out to movies together, we kayak together, we play a crazy game called pickleball,” Melinda Gates told CNBC.

105470381-melinda_gates_pickleball.1910x1000Similar to badminton or tennis, but played with paddles and a light plastic ball, pickleball is a favorite of suburbanites, and according to Melinda, of the Gates family.

“We are huge pickleball fans,” Gates says.

“In fact, one of the things that Bill was so excited to teach me when we first were dating was pickleball. His family took me out on the court and they taught me, it’s easier to pick up than tennis. He1’s more of a tennis player, but I play pickleball with him.”

End The Summer With a Smile – The Pickleball Song

By Greg Klinkel

Thank you, Greg, for a great song and great laughs! Be sure to watch until the end. Pickleball peeps – all about good friends and good times!

I met up with some friends; we shared a glass of wine
They asked me what I do, how I spend my time
I told ’em ’bout my grandkids, and most of all
I really love pickleball!

I told ’em ’bout the paddle, I told ’em ’bout the ball
I told ’em ’bout the lob and how you’re not supposed to fall
The scoring seemed confusing, and they asked me again
“Where does the pickle fit in?”

Pickleball, the fun never ends
The kind of game that you play with friends
No one says they’re sorry, and when the game ends
You switch it up and start all over again

You start out nice and easy with an underhand serve
You have to be ready for a deep return
Then things can get crazy, and you play it as it comes
Volleyin’ and dinkin’ till you’re done

Pickleball, the fun never ends
The kind of game that you play with friends
No one says they’re sorry, and when the game ends
You switch it up and start all over again

Now I’m a PB addict, and I play every day
My waking life is ruled in a pickleball way
Please don’t tell my grandkids that most of all
I really love pickleball!

Pickleball, the fun never ends
The kind of game that you play with friends
Please don’t tell my grandkids that most of all
I really love pickleball!
I really love pickleball!
Really, really, really
Really, really, really
I really love pickleball!
