Why do this for pickleball? Adult pickleball players are asking for the same type of skill-based leagues that are offered for tennis in the summer and platform tennis in the winter.

PickleballZone.com (PBZ) will have similarities to both OTZ and PTZ. The results information will be the best in the business and it will provide users with a clear understanding of player and team performance. The photos will be tightly integrated with the rest of the content by including player profile photos in numerous reports. The action photos will be just as professional as they are on the other Gerber Analytics web sites.

Our background is with Columbus' CompuServe and more specifically with the personal financial services area within the service. We knew how to compare companies in a clear and understanding way and the same approach is used with racquet sports.

How many times have you left a tennis court wondering what the names were of the people you just played? No more. Nothing is more social than pickleball and the photos on PBZ will help you remember the names and perhaps even the backgrounds of the people you played.

OhioTennisZone has earned court side credentials with the Western & Southern Open tournament since 2014. Court side credentials have also been granted for numerous other professional tennis tournaments, Ohio State University matches, and NCAA tournaments. Those same skills will be used for the pickleball league to capture some great action photos and the fun that players are having. Two platform tennis action photos have even made the cover of the American Platform Tennis Association magazine. (Click on PBZ photos for more examples.)

Pickleball is already huge and growing quickly and hopefully PickleballZone.com will help propel it even further. OhioTennisZone is the top-ranked web site on Google when users type in "Ohio tennis". That is higher than any other publication and higher than the Ohio State University tennis teams and the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

Hope you have a great time in the league and please always feel free to share your comments using Feedback.
