Much like when The Beatles swept through America and dominated the musical landscape, now pickleball seems to have taken over America. It seems like everywhere you look public tennis courts are being converted into public pickleball courts. This is certainly the case in Eastern Washington. 

Pickleball - Mixed Doubles Play

I have no experience with this new sport, although I'd have played ping pong once or twice. And my parents tried to get me interested in tennis when I was young, but it didn't take. 

Now comes an announcement from “Pickleball Kingdom”, a Sports Club that is selling franchises. Pickleball Kingdom was originally planning on opening 2 clubs in the state of Washington. But now, with an almost evangelical zeal, they are planning on rolling out clubs across Washington State.
