"After many years of teaching tennis in the Texas heat, I began looking for a way to move my activities indoors. One day while jogging on an overhead track above a large gym at the Cypress Creek YMCA, in Houston, Texas, I envisioned possibilities for the up-and-coming sport called PICKLEBALL that I had just heard about while teaching tennis in Colorado. My knowledge and skills in tennis gave me the tools to implement a new grassroots pickleball program in the Houston area."
This book will help anyone who desires to build a successful pickleball program wherever it may be located. It will also provide the tools needed to support the various planning activities throughout the year.
