"Consumers are gravitating toward pickleball for its open-play format connecting participants authentically in a socially friendly and physically dynamic environment where everyone, regardless of skill set, is immediately welcomed - we're incredibly excited about the expansive, innovative editorial opportunities to not only cover pickleball, but also to explore the interconnection between pickleball and categories of interest that cross-pollinate with it."
