2018 marks the 53rd Anniversary of Pickleball, as it was invented in 1965 on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, by three enterprising dads. Their children were bored with their usual summertime activities.
The origin of the game’s name is thought to be derived from the one family’s cocker spaniel, “Pickles”, who loved to chase stray balls and hide them in the bushes.
