Pickleball Magazine Cover Maren Morris Says ‘Pickleball is Life’

Pickleball has a moment. Just yesterday he was announced that Stephen Colbert would host a celebrity pickleball tournament on CBS next month. Tom Brady invests in the racket game. And he has a vocal supporter in country-pop star Maren Morris, who espoused his dedication to the sport on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. “Pickleball is life,” she said.

As Kimmel mentioned, Morris is on the cover of the latest issue of Pickleball magazine, which is one thing. In the accompanying storyMorris explained that she chose the game as something to do while on tour to support her latest album humble quest.

“I was adamant that pickleball would become a trend for my team while we were on tour,” she said. “I went to Amazon and bought a ton of gear so we could set up a travel pitch at each venue for the duration of our tour! Funny, I don’t think I’ve ever played on one real pickleball field. It would be so nice to be able to play on a real field once the tour is over!

“As I was still getting to know team members who were new to my team, pickleball was a great way to bring the team together and bond over a game that was fun and social in nature,” said continued Morris. “It was a great way to get to know each other!”
