    I would say, as a sports fan and i assume a middled aged dude that has or does participate in sports, you are an outlier.

      PB is a blast. You should try it.

          Maybe in Utah or Idaho. The US? No way.
          Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

            Yeah, I think certain areas of the west have a lot more exposure. It's tough to find a court here in TX, unless you join one of those high falootin' tennis clubs.

              Huh. My brother told me I am unique. Just like everybody else.

                First time I played was in WA, but I will concede your point. May be something to that.

                  Signed up for my first tournament. I really don't know what to expect, and my playing partner is nervous about it, so we sand-bagged it a bit and signed up for 3.5.

                    My BiL signed up for a local city tournament with my teen niece and won. Good luck! As long as you're having fun - that's all the matters...right?

                      Yes - having fun is all that matters. And winning.

                        Every tournament is different.

                        As a general rule:

                        The big tournaments everyone places down a level so a 3.5 tournament is really a 4.0.
                        The smaller tournaments everyone plays up so 3.5 is really 3.0.

                        Easiest way to see where you sit is to find the competitive groups in your city and see how well you play. There’s a huge number of folks who travel all over the country playing PB tournaments and they’ll be able to tell you right where you fit.

                          I played pick up Pickleball at a club in Orem this morning. I played against and with a guy that looked vaguely familiar, but I couldn’t figure out where. Good player. Sneaky good serve. As I was leaving, I realized it was Cougjunkie. Sorry for blowing that lead, Junkie.
