Hi, I'm Gabrielle but most pickleballers just call me G! I am doing a tournament in all 50 states so I am constantly traveling and checking out new places! You can follow my journey on my Instagram @picklethe50.
In addition to pickleball, I love trying new sports, eating lots of food, biking and walking, playing soccer, meeting new people, playing board games, hosting parties and events, and reading!
Countries Visited :
Favorite Things :
Books: Jane Austen all the way! I love Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Persuasion. I also love well written biographies of missionaries or positive cultural influencers like William Willberforce and in depth theology books.
Movies: I really love a bit of everything. Romance, drama, action, kids movies, superheroes, sports movies, anything but horror!
Music: Like movies, I like a wide variety of things, but my go-to is either 60's or classical. :)
Where I live :
My husband, Ben, and I live in Longview, Washington. Though not from here, we have grown to love this city and the people here. We love to walk around beautiful Lake Sacajawea and enjoy the greenery. If we're not at the lake, then we are typically at the courts or the grocery store shopping for our next BBQ!
Pickleball Community in my Hometown :
We have quite the variety here. A lot of 3.0-3.5's, a lot of 4.0's, and a scattered few 4.5's and above. Overall the pickleball community is really friendly and welcoming!
Pickleball Experiences :
I was introduced to pickleball back in 2017 at a rec center in Newport, Oregon. I played a bit at the time but not seriously. I got back into the sport in late 2019 and have since really fallen in love and taken the sport more seriously. I am a tournament player, and like I mentioned am doing a tournament in all 50 states. One of my FAVORITE things about pickleball is the beautiful, incredible people I have met along the way! I love pickleball people!!! Getting to travel around the country and meet different pickleballers is just the best thing ever. I am so blessed by every host family who has housed me and fed me- huge thanks to all who have!!!!
