Our Obligation as Pickleballers
We have no obligation! Just go out there and play the game, as long as you are not hurting or bothering others.
However, we do have opportunities:
We can be examples of good behavior both to our fellow pickleballers, as well as the general public. For instance in this website, you’ll see no references to smoking, drinking, drug use, or bad behavior.
Is it possible that through the ripple effect we pickleball players could eventually create a better society? Can I go so far as to suggest that if we all do that we’ll quite possibly end world warfare?
So, anytime you’re on or off the courts and have a choice of acting badly, or acting nicely, well… you get the idea.
