USA Today pickleball NBA bubble

You’ve seen NBA referee crew chief Scott Foster on the cover of Pickleball Magazine, and now USA Today has reported live from the NBA Bubble as finals wrap up and the refs, staff and media personalities, including Richard Jefferson, continue to play pickleball every day.

“The culture of pickleball is to grow the game, and everywhere I’ve gone all over the country when I first started playing two years ago, people were like that with me,” Foster said. “I wasn’t very good and top players said, ‘Come play with us,’ and they would teach me the game even though it was taking away from their game. Everywhere I went, it was like that.”
