Sometimes, we hear about a player or champion of the sport over and over and over again. And since our mission is to help pickleball grow, this choice for Player of the Month was an easy one.
This player has grown his reputation, not just through playing pickleball, but for his incredible love and passion for it.
As the story goes, John took his own basketball court and converted it to a pickleball court so he could start teaching friends and neighbors this great game. He has taught many, many people from Fowler, and Fresno, California, including
many high school groups. And because of his giving and giving and giving to grow pickleball there, the town of Fowler has even built two courts and dedicated them to John.
His pickleball passion and energy is just boundless.
So please help us congratulate our Pickleball Rocks Player of the Month, John Browning.
John Browning is the “Godfather” of Pickleball in the Fresno, CA region of Central California. He has played and won at the highest level in National and World competition in both singles and doubles. Even today, in his 80s, he can hang with folks 50 years younger. He is our role model.
