A selection of pickleball memes

Pickleball is all about having a good time. Maybe that's because of pickleball's origins as an impromptu, spontaneous way to spend some time with the family. Whatever you think, pickleball is an inherently whimsical world.

Pickleheads never take themselves too seriously and love to dress in colorful, whacky clothing for pickleball games (think neon t-shirts and pickle-branded socks).

Whereas tennis and racquetball can seem a little serious and stuffy, pickleball is casual and relaxed. The character of the sport means that pickleball tournaments and post-pickleball parties, picnics, and barbecues are about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on (or off, if you’ve jumped onboard the nude pickleball trend).

This fun-loving part of the pickleball life lends itself perfectly to the world of witty internet memes. Pickleball memes spread like wildfire among pickleball partners and are great for some pickleball lols off the courts.

They are often ‘in jokes’ in the community that fall into the ‘IYKYK’ (if you know, you know) bracket.

Here at Pickleheads, we can’t resist a good sports meme (as our pickleball friends will attest!), so we’ve decided to put together 27 of our favorites.

Dink pickleball memes

The dink is, of course, the most elegant of shots in pickleball when done right. Perfecting this shot isn’t easy, and these dink memes poke fun at the pressure a picklehead can feel to get them right, and not allow their opponent an easy lob return shot.

Kitchen pickleball memes

‘If it’s too hot, get out of the kitchen!’, the old saying goes. These pickleball kitchen memes highlight the funny side of sticking to the pickleball rules governing the non-volley zone rules (as set out by the USA Pickleball).

Pickleball is a much lower impact sport than other racquet sports, but us pickleball lovers do occasionally get hurt. Luckily, we can even see the humor in falling over, as these pickleball injury memes will show you:

Pickleball gear memes

Like many other sports-obsessed communities, pickleheads tend to look toward the best pickleball skirts, shorts, paddles, and other gear, in the hope it might magically improve their skills on the pickleball court.

Pickleball players, for example, will always need as many pickleball paddles as they can afford. The perfect pickleball paddle is out there somewhere!
