Pickleball is all about having a good time. Maybe because of its origins as an impromptu, spontaneous way to pass some time with the family, pickleball is an inherently whimsical world.

Pickleheads never take themselves too seriously, and love to dress in colorful, whacky sports gear (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 falls 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.  

Funny Pickleball Memes

First and foremost, here are six funny pickleball memes that have given us a good chuckle recently:

    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.

    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 USAPA).
