"I think local players and advocates have a real chance to start lobbying high schools and Universities to encourage more participation at that age group through programs. It won't be long before the NCAA take note and go in," said Morgan Evans. "I think that's the best chance we have to inspire a movement towards having pickleball at the Olympic Games."
