The game of pickleball started on Bainbridge Island in 1965 and has garnered the attention of many athletes and non-athletes. The game is fairly simple to pick up and good exercise which is appealing to a lot of pickleballers. San Luis Obispo is "all in" on the game and recently built new pickleball courts for the city.
The SLO Country Club was the first to have pickleball courts and has a standing play day every Monday at 4 p.m. Here are some of the dedicated players who love this weird and odd sport we know as pickleball.
