5 Reasons Pickleball is the Perfect Summer Activity for Your Kids
Summer is finally here, and it's time to get your kiddos out of the house and into the great outdoors! But hold up, that doesn’t always have to be just another day at the pool. Here are five reasons pickleball is the perfect summer activity for your kids.

1. Pickleball gets your kids outside

In this digital age, screens are like a second limb for us. It's time to remind our kids of the beauty of nature. Pickleball is the perfect way to help your children forget about their phones and embrace the great outdoors. As they soak up some vitamin D, they'll also experience the benefits of fresh air and exercise.

2. Pickleball teaches your kids how to learn from their mistakes

Playing pickleball with your kids is a chance to teach them an essential lesson: how to laugh at your mistakes. When you whiff an overhead or hit a ball that was going out by a mile, it's an opportunity to show your kids that mistakes are okay. Not only can we learn from them, but they can make the game even more fun!

3. Pickleball teaches your kids strategy

As your kids make mistakes, they'll have the chance to learn from them. This lesson applies to everyone on the pickleball court: we're all learning — always. You'll be able to show your kids what works and what doesn't, and they'll be able to form a unique strategy that's tailored to their strengths and weaknesses.

4. Pickleball helps your kids build diverse friendships

Pickleball is a melting pot. When you take your kids to public courts, they’ll be able to meet kids their age, senior citizens, and everyone in between. They’ll have something in common with people who are radically different from them, while being in a safe and playful environment.

5. Pickleball gives them a game to play for life

Most sports kids play aren’t lifetime sports. It’s fun to play tackle football when you’re an eight-year-old boy. It’s stupid when you’re 44. Pickleball gives your kids a safe sport to play for every season of life. Plus, since pickleball is easy to learn and hard to master, your kids can take a lifetime to become the best pickler they can be.

Pickleball is most enjoyed in groups of four, close to the average family size in the U.S. That’s one of the reasons we make bundles — so a family can make one purchase and have all the gear they need to start pickling.
