The 48-48-48 Pickleball Challenge

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the World and having recently moved to Florida, I've ditched the golf clubs and am now a Pickleball addict, despite having an artificial hip.

I'm combining my passion for flying (since high school) with my newly found passion for Pickleball in this World Record Attempt:

48 Pickleball Matches in 48 States in less than 48 Days.

I'll be flying with a fellow pickleball addict and pilot to the Lower 48 states in the Spring/Summer of 2023.

We'll be in 13 State Capitals and the Top 5 most populated cities in 39 of the Lower 48 States.

We'll be playing with celebrities, Professional Pickleballers, news media, and local players in a variety of venues including public/private indoor and outdoor facilities, Tournament Venues, even airplane hangars!

We'll have a ton of local and national media interest in this event and generate a ton of content (blogs, videos, etc) from each venue and from the flight deck.

Can we do it?

Along the way we'll encounter good weather, bad weather, good pickleball and bad pickleball.

Looking forward to the support from the Pickleball and aviation communities and others wanting for us to succeed in this World Record Attempt.

The funds raised will be used for fuel, fees, lodging, etc. along the way.
