Move over cornhole. It’s pickleball’s turn to be televised on the ESPN network of stations! At long last. In addition to the live streaming of Championship Court and live streams from spectators and participants that can be found in the private Facebook Group, Pickleball Forum, a world-wide audience will now be able to tune into ESPN3 for live coverage (and ESPNews for a 1-hour special) of the 2018 USA Pickleball National Championships at Indian Wells Tennis Garden — adding yet another layer of legitimacy to the sport we all love!
The 2018 USA Pickleball National Championships will be broadcast live (hosted by former tennis grand slam champions Luke and Murphy Jensen) on Thursday, November 8 through Sunday, November 11 from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST on ESPN3.
Additionally, a one-hour special will debut at 3:00 PM EST Sunday, November 25 on ESPNEWS and will re-air on the same network at 1:00 PM Saturday, December 22.
