BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Jeh Jeh was live Tuesday from The Finley Center in Hoover to find out about the indoor championship of USA Pickleball.

The 2021 USA Pickleball National Indoor Championships will be held June 8th-13th, 2021. Pickleball was invented in 1965 on Bainbridge Island. Three dads – Joel Pritchard, Bill Bell, and Barney McCallum — whose kids were bored with their usual summertime activities — are credited for creating the game.

Pickleball has evolved from original handmade equipment and simple rules into a popular sport throughout the US and Canada. The game is growing internationally as well, with many European and Asian countries adding courts.
