Or perhaps you're a seasoned Pickler who can't stop extolling its many benefits. Pickleball is for everyone, and The New Yorker and InPickleball cartoonist Ellis Rosen is the ideal guide to explain and celebrate this new favorite pastime's storied history, the ins and outs of its gameplay, and all the language and jokes that are part of the fun. Grab a paddle, sidle up to the Pickledome, and prepare to dink to your heart's content."--Inside front cover.

Book Synopsis

Maybe you've heard the word "pickleball," but you want to know what all the fun is about. Or you're already an enthusiastic fan and want to celebrate the ins, the outs, the dillballs, the chops, and the falafels of it all. Enter Ellis Rosen, resident cartoonist for In Pickleball magazine and frequent contributor to The New Yorker. Rosen is a master of communicating this fantastic sport's primary characteristics with subtlety and wit. Alongside background on the game--its founding in 1995, the mysterious origins of its name, and more--Ellis will relate some tips for improving your on-court moves, a lovingly humorous glossary of pickleball terms, and some cheeky nods at pickleball culture. A celebration of community in addition to a what's-what and how-to guide to this unique and amazing sport, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better gift for the pickleball lover in your life.
