During these uncertain times, pickleball enthusiasts across the globe have been forced to put down their paddles as they resort to social distancing and adjusting to life’s new normal. While many players have undoubtedly figured out creative ways to practice their dinks, serves and more from the comfort of their own homes, there’s never been a better time to relive some of the most exciting action from the 2019 Margaritaville USA Pickleball National Championships.

The record-setting 2019 tournament saw over 2,200 players and thousands of pickleball enthusiasts descend on the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for the sport’s premiere event.
