Wondering where to find a quality single man?

While I’m a big fan of Meetup groups, speed dating events, and chatting up strangers pretty much anywhere (I met my husband at a restaurant), if you want to know where to find a single man, playing Pickleball is by far the most fun way to uplevel your social life and meet an eligible single man.

Yes, I admit it, I’m totally obsessed with the game! 🙂

If you don’t know what it is, Pickleball is a fun and easy sport that combines elements of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton.

It’s a sport that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It has a funny name, a quirky sound, and a simple rule: have fun!

And anyone can play, regardless of age. I’ve played with 20-year-olds and 90-year-olds.

It’s a game you can enjoy at any level. If you’re not at all athletic, that’s perfectly fine. And if you’re sporty, you can play in tournaments and spend a lifetime mastering the game.

It’s a game men and women can play together.

I’ve been a tennis player my whole life and mostly played with women. Pickleball is way more fun. And you get to meet men!

You’ll meet a diverse group of people from many different cultures and backgrounds.

My pickleball buds are some of the most wonderful and interesting folks I’ve ever met.

So any way you slice it (pun intended), playing Pickleball is an amazing way to grow your social circle, meet single men of all ages, and maybe even find the love of your life.

So, where can you find a single man?

On the Pickleball court!

My friends John and Heather met while playing pickleball at their local YMCA. They got married on the same Pickleball court where they met!

My mom once told me people show their true colors when playing a sport, and she was right. You can tell a lot about people on the court.

Pickleball requires communication and teamwork so it’s easy to spot a man who is someone supportive, positive, and encouraging. Keep an eye out for the good ones when you play!

Where to play Pickleball (and meet single men)

No matter where you live or travel, it’s easy to find people to play with because Pickleball is everywhere. Just do a Google search.

Look for “open play” where you can show up and play with whoever’s there. Just bring a paddle and join the fun.

Sometimes referred to as “drop-in”, open play is a great place to meet single men in a relaxed and playful environment where it’s easy to connect, laugh together, and simply have a blast. You never know who you might hit it off with on the court!

But first, consider taking a beginner’s clinic to learn the basics. You can Google those too.

For me, Pickleball has been the perfect physical and mental health elixir. I enjoy being outside (you can play inside too), I love spending time with friends, and moving my body feels great. Pickleball delivers all of the above and so much more!

No matter what your level of experience, Pickleball is a fun time with awesome people where you can be yourself and have a blast.

It’s also a great place to find a single man!

So, whether you’re looking to make new friends or meet one special person, Pickleball might be the answer for you.

Take my advice – go grab a paddle, and head to the nearest court. You’ll be glad you did! And let me know how it goes!
