For a majority of people the last time you played pickleball was probably in gym class at school, but this quick paced sport is picking up steam and becoming wildly popular in recent years. The next time you visit a park that has pickleball courts, if you glance over that direction, you will probably see the courts full, finding court time can be difficult even here in East Texas. Which is just another reason why it’s so cool to find out that the 2023 USA Pickleball National Championship is coming to Texas.
