Pickleball – The New Fountain of Youth

“Pickleball – The New Fountain of Youth!”

The headline practically writes itself! With its blend of agility, strategy, and camaraderie, pickleball has become more than just a game, it’s a lifestyle! It has produced more citizen attendance in front of the Thomaston City Council than just about anything since the finger-pointing from the floor about a proposed new sign ordinance.

Citizens speak, council listens. Pickleballers get new courts. Democracy in action, which could be a reason why the approval rating for local government is in the high 60%-70% range while faith in Washington hovers around the touchdown and a field goal level.

It’s a critical election year with endless, contentious debate about what to do on the southern border. Some eyes look at the border and say it’s secure, most eyes look and use a long-gone verbal street challenge to someone’s honesty: “That’s Malarkey, Jack!” Everyone was Jack back then.

Pickleballers could have the answer to a debate no one can seem to resolve. Petition Washington to fund hundreds of miles of pickle ball courts along the border; pickleballers will build the courts in record time. There will be pickleball play day and night, seven days a week…and no one will dare interrupt a match, lest getting immediate, due punishment for illegal passage across sacred ground.

Why is pickleball the rage? The Bee Gees said it best, “Feel the city breakin’ and everybody shakin’ and we’re stayin’ alive – ah, ha, ha, ha. Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive!”

Players of all ages are discovering pickleball’s rejuvenating effects on both body and mind, making it a veritable fountain of youth. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or a newcomer to the court, pickleball’s “IT!” A fun and invigorating way to stay active, alive, and youthful physically and at heart!

“Pickleball: Where the paddle meets the passion, and every point scored is a story waiting to be told over coffee.”
