    Had never heard of it before this post.

    Have now done a bit of Googling around it and found some videos. Interesting! Not sure how much of a presence it has over here in the UK...

    It is truly an addictive sport. The court is a little smaller than a tennis court, and the net
    is a little lower. Less running and more of a chance to get the ball over the net.

    You serve underhand so it is easier to get the serve in. Scoring takes some getting used
    to. The best way to learn about it IS to watch the YouTube videos.

    We live in the Tampa, Florida area which is on the west coast. 140 miles south of us
    there will be a U.S. Open pickleball tournament where anyone can enter, but the
    professionals will be there as well. Yes, there is money to be made in pickleball if you
    are good enough!

    We will camp nearby and go to the events for 3 days. It's sure to be a fun event. This
    will be the fourth year we have done this. We always have a great time.

    Pickleball is fun to watch and fun to play. I found this site which may help you find a
    venue: https://www.pickleballportal.com/guides/where-to-play-pickleball-in-the-uk/

    Have fun!

    I will do that.

    Also speaking of YouTube:

    Their latest bully tactic is to prevent ad-blocking on YouTube, most recently they made it so that you have three videos before being 'locked out' if you use an ad-blocker.

    I've been doing some searching and testing and can say that the Opera gaming browser has a built in ad-blocker and VPN, so far YouTube is not nagging me about it.

    I am also checking Tampermonkey scripts to see what else can be used with current, in-place browsers.
