History of Pickleball: https://usapickleball.org/what-is-pickleball/history-of-the-game/


Theresa Haynie gave in to the pickleball bug after a week of daily play in the desert. After relocating full time to Seattle from Orcas Island with her pickleball-playing wife, Kathy, she started playing in earnest. Getting time on the courts proved challenging however, and rather than sit on the sidelines, she took the plunge to help create an organization to encourage local municipalities to create more pickleball courts, indoors and out.

Theresa helped found Seattle Metro Pickleball Association to improve access and advocate for pickleball in the greater metro area. In 2019, following a gold medal win at the USA Pickleball National Championships, Theresa decided to focus on promoting play for women in the sport because of the need for safe and comfortable spaces for women to learn the game. Her early efforts have grown to 5 sessions each week, two-hour Women’s Skills and Drills groups (WDSG) supporting the play and development for more that 150 women who weekly cycle through the free events in Shoreline, WA.
