Anyone who's at a protest after dark is just looking for (or starting) trouble. In either case, trouble is gonna find you.
Agreed. There are certainly a fair number of people who are spectators and just want to see the mayhem. I can understand that to an extent, but I value my personal safety too much to partake in that, especially at this point in my life.

holy fk, pickleball is fun

I went on a date and the girl humiliated me in tennis, but I destroyed her in pickleball

we never went out again, I wasn't sure if it was because of the tennis or the pickleball

That's the thing, I came from tennis and thought I'd destroy in pickleball but was quickly humiliated.
I'd say if you're good at table tennis, it helps more than tennis, because the strokes are way more compact and paddle is short. No strings. There's no swing.
It's all about the dink. Tho knowing how to hit top spins and slices helps.

If people ask me what pickleball is, I tell them to imagine a giant ping pong table that you're standing on and playing with giant ping pong paddles.

The whole scene is just so nerdy and the rules are ridiculous but so damn fun to play. :poop:

Yeah the amount of 3D space required for tennis or racquetball is simply not practical nowadays, especially in high rent shitlord districts. Combined with declining usage, it makes perfect sense that it's all converting in to pickleball
