Join The “Island Life” With Bainbridge Island

History of Pickleball: Created in 1965 in the backyard of Joel Pritchard with a friend (Bill), the goal to have an activity the whole family could participate in. They created it on an old badminton court and since they didn’t have badminton rackets, they used ping pong paddles. Over the weekend they created rules and lowered the net from 60” to 36”, since the plastic ball they were using bounced so well on the court. Now it’s one of the fastest growing sports in the US! This took place at Joel Pritchard’s home on Bainbridge Island, WA just a ferry ride away from Seattle. This ingenuity and drive for living an active lifestyle is still a driving force on Bainbridge Island and especially at Bainbridge Island Health and Rehabilitation Center. They have a team of therapists and nurses that are here to help you get back to life! They enjoy the “Island Life” in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, home of amazing outdoor activities and weekend getaways (including Pickleball at the Founder’s Court). We are looking for therapists to join this awesome team. Come see us at the facility and then take an afternoon to play some pickleball!
