Overheard on the Courts…

Sometimes,  if you listen carefully,  amazing wisdom comes from pickleball players on the court.

Here’s an example…

A husband and wife were warming up on a mini court that consisted of The Kitchen and about seven feet on each side behind the non-volley zone line.

The wife opened her arms and pointed to the mini court as she said,  “See this?  This is ALL we really need in our living room! ”
