I am Michael Ordonez, and this is my Pickleball story
I was never enthusiastic about sports but more interested in my studies. After finishing high school, one day,
I went to my grandparents’ house. It was a boring afternoon when I decided to accompany my grandfather. He was getting all dressed up for some random game for older people.
As I had nothing else to do, I decided to accompany him. He took me to some weird-looking tennis court. It was smaller than the normal tennis court, which I thought was made for older people.
Suddenly some happy faces came inside the field, and one of them offered me to play with them. I couldn’t control my laughter as I thought it would be too easy!
I was accompanied by a tall, muscular man with grey hair visible through his cap.
My teammate took the big ping-pong ball with a serious look on his face and delivered a lofty surf, and the beautiful game started! Our opponent directed the Pickleball toward me.
I went in running towards the Pickleball, as the ball didn’t have that much pace on it. I wanted to smash it hard and beyond the reach of my opponents.
In the blink of an eye, the ball spun away from me, and I lost my balance and fell to the ground! My partner came towards me and told me, “look who is laughing now.”
That spin! Yes, that was the moment when all the trouble began! I fell in love with this beautiful game!
After that day, I started playing Pickleball on a regular basis, started watching pickleball games, followed a bunch of pickleball players, read a lot of books on Pickleball, took training, and many more things. Now, you can call this pal of yours a Pickler.
Today, I am not alone. Almost all of my friends are crazy about Pickleball, like me. We call each other PicklerPal.
Then came the idea of breaking the border and connecting with Picklers around the globe and being the PicklerPals beyond race, culture, colour, and border!
We strive to help pickleball players improve their game, play their best Pickleball, and connect with others in the pickleball community, where ever it is, north or south, east or west.

We believe a paddle without control is like a ship without sail as both helps in giving direction!
As the weight increases it becomes difficult to play with ease.
The last thing you would want is to have a broken paddle in the middle of an exciting match!
We personally use the paddle and take response from other user so the the review is not biased.
What is a shoe without comfort. To avoid blister, comfort is also essential.
The more cushions in a shoe the less chance to having an injury!
While playing pickleball of you slip a lot, you can easily get injured.
