Bart and I started playing pickleball in 2019. It really happened by accident. Wasting time at the gym, looking for any other type of exercise other than running, we decided to mess around and play this game called pickleball that Bart remembered playing in a friend's backyard growing up. We borrowed the gym's wooden paddles and Bart stood right at the net and slammed the ball repeatedly back at me (cheater). In true pickleball community fashion, some other pickleball players on an adjacent court, took pity on us and invited us to play. Eventually, we learned the rules and the advantage of a quality paddle and fell in love with the game with the funny name.
ABP was born from a desire to help other pickleball players in the same way those good Samaritans helped us that day at the gym. We started by acquiring a pool of paddles, so our friends at the courts could test them out before they bought one of their own. We'd gladly help beginners learn the rules and would never turn down a chance to discuss tactics. Helping pickleball lovers reach their performance goals through the right equipment and instruction is what ABP is all about. We're your friends on the pickleball court who will always stay for one more game.
