If you look around for examples of kindness, you will find them almost everywhere – even on a pickleball court. My husband and I now begin most mornings playing pickleball. We were fortunate to find nearby courts and a couple of folks willing to show us the basics. After that, we became hooked on this popular sport.
While playing doubles with people we had never met, I’ve observed the great number of positive comments, even when a ball goes far from where it was intended. And when winning a challenging volley, the accolades make you feel like you won a million dollars.
It’s about people sharing a kind word to opponents. That’s what makes the game fun, and the world just a little bit better place to be.
