Happy New Year! Brrrrr

Despite the blistering cold temps across much of North America, you've already posted over 40,000 play sessions for 2024! All the snowbirds who made it to Florida, Arizona, and Mexico are feeling pretty good about their life choices right now. Here in California, we apparently have no shame about whining over 50°F days. How wonderful that pickleball can be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors. (Reason #4,739 it's the best sport ever invented!)

In this month's newsletter, we show you how to bookmark the PTS website to your phone's home screen for a more app-like experience. Read tips from Pickleball For Dummies on practicing with players of different skill levels, and a story about some intrepid Iowans who chose to "Dink in the New Year" (a tradition we think needs to catch on everywhere.) 

If you're in the market for a new paddle (who isn't?) be sure to check out Franklin'snew FS Tour Series, the SLK Reflex bundle from Selkirk, the Prolite K2 Power paddle, and the Paddletek Bantam ALW-C. Not sure which one is right for you? Learn how Royal Pickleball gives you access to demoing all the best paddles on the market before you buy – pretty cool!
