  1. Started watching Pickleball on Tennis Channel, PPA Championships at San Clemente – The TV camera is in the wrong place – it is center court and should be situated at one end. The play is hard to see what’s going on until replay points which are shown from the end where it is possible to see what’s happening on court. Also easier to see the ball. Whoever is responsible for this should talk to Tennis Channel TV people who always show the game from one end or the other. Impossible to see points being set up with TV camera at center of court – very frustrating to watch. Hopefully the Doubles matches coming up will have camera at an end of the court.

    1. Further to my comment above, camera at the end is better for Singles matches. Watching Doubles matches now and camera at center of court is better for Doubles

  2. We ought to get a huge discount for subscribing to the TC in our customized plan from our service provider. Just for being Pickleball peeps w/ PPA tee shirts. I salute whoever cements that deal, lol!

    Let me not forget to salute the PPA for cementing this deal w/ the TC.
    Cheers Conner Pardo and team! 😉👍
