New Guide "Pickleball Is Life" (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, November 16, 2022

This week I talked with author Erin McHugh about her new must-read book “Pickleball Is Life: The Complete Guide to Feeding Your Obsession” just in time for the holiday season. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America. It’s easy to learn but impossible to master making it the sports craze that’s sweeping the nation. Nearly 5 million people nationwide have picked up their paddles & taken to the court. In her new book McHugh highlights the rules & the fun of the game in a fabulous handbook format published by HarperCollins & delightfully illustrated by Jackie Besteman. “Pickleball Is Life” is the first book of its kind celebrating the wild & wonderful world of pickleball taking the readers on a journey from the sport’s quirky origins to its modern-day cult following. Erin shares a vast pickleball history & knowledge including etiquette tips, a DIY court, obscure rules & pointers for good-natured trash talk. Along the way with its visual graphs & illustrations you’ll be inspired to get on board to the current trend that has embraced everyone of all ages & attracted a huge celebrity following. Erin also includes interviews with members of the three founding families from Bainbridge Island, Washington who are still very much involved in the sport & its growth. People of all athletic abilities & backgrounds have fallen in love with pickleball but it’s also an excellent way to exercise, interact & socialize with others something we’re all craving now more than ever. In this exclusive audio chat I talked to Erin about her inspiration for writing her new book & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
