Pickleball Passion:
From Bainbridge Island to the Paradise Coast

February 1st – May 7th, 2022

Collier Museum at Government Center

“I’m bored! There’s nothing to do!” It’s the phrase that’s elicited sighs and eyerolls from parents for decades. But did you know that one summer day in 1965 it also engendered a fun and funky sport whose exponential growth shows no signs of slowing? The place was Bainbridge Island, Washington, and the whiny kid in question was Frank Pritchard. When “make something up,” came as the parental reply, pickleball was born! From its homegrown roots as an addictive diversion for the in-crowd around Seattle, to the Southwest Florida tourism phenomenon it is today, pickleball has stayed true to some core values: favor skill and agility over physical dominance and never, ever, ever, forget to have fun! Join us for this enjoyable and informative look at pickleball’s past, present, and future. No pickles were harmed in the making of this exhibit.
