INDIANAPOLIS — Rick Witsken, a pro Pickleball player, let Indy Now hosts Jillian Deam and Ryan Ahlwardt try their hand at the increasingly popular sport.

Pickleball is like ping pong on a tennis court, he said, and it’s a sport that athletes and non-athletes are quick to pick it up… including Jillian and Ryan!

Witsken, a former professional tennis player and current tennis coach in Zionsville, is the host of an upcoming Pickleball tournament, the APP $35k Indianapolis Open at Mt. Vernon High School in Fortville, Indiana.

The event takes place Thursday, June 2 through Sunday, June 5, and tickets are still available.
