The Holderness Family – A Pickleball Video Parody

Hundreds – perhaps thousands of videos in – and The Holderness Family hadn’t yet spoofed or made fun of pickleball.  Given its silly name, unique rules, and its legion of hyper-passionate fans, pickleball had somehow remained off their radar.

Who is The Holderness Family, Anyway?

Great question.  My guess is many of you have seen their videos.  According to their YouTube Channel, “The Holderness Family creates original music, parodies, and Vlogs for YouTube to poke fun of themselves and celebrate the absurdity in circumstances most families face in their day-to-day life.”

Perhaps you’ve unknowingly viewed their video parodies in recent years on YouTube. During the last ten years, Kim and Penn Holderness have created hilarious (and viral) videos, including “Christmas Jammies,” “All About That Baste,” “Baby Got Class” and “Snow Day.”

Pickleball Video Parody

So, having avoided being a parody target for about a decade, The Holderness Family, earlier today, took dead aim at the sport and created a video that is sure to make any pickleball addict laugh – and, perhaps, cringe – as it depicts many of the absurdities and stereotypes of the amazing sport that we all love.

I’m wondering if this will be the first of several more pickleball videos after they review the number of  YouTube views, likes and shares and maybe, just maybe, become addicted to the sport as well. In any event, hope you enjoy.

A Second Pickleball Video Published in October 2022

In October 2022, approximately 16 months after publishing their initial pickleball parody video and several months after competing (and winning) on season 33 of “The Amazing Race,” (which aired from January to March 2022), Kim and Penn Holderness published their second pickleball video, called “The Five Stages of Pickleball.”

As pickleball enthusiasts/addicts, I think we can all relate to the following video!
