CALL FOR PITCHES
InPickleball is currently seeking the best of the best in the world of pickleball (destinations, gear, events, etc.) for our upcoming issues and digital content. We’re looking for anything and everything that will showcase the gold standard of pickleball – from universal interest to highlighting how it isn’t just a sport, but rather a way of life.
Send your pitches (no more than two to three paragraphs, please) along with two or three writing clips to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s what we’re looking to include
(100-150 word stories) – Both news and feature items in the world of pickleball, including (but not limited to), equipment, fashion, style, recipes, court stories, rule changes, club happenings, etc. Think FOB-style items that are punchy, but packed with info those who play the sport would have a solid takeaway from, whether the takeaway is news, humor, or inspiration.
(300 to 1600, depending on scope) – Stories that stem from pickleball, but don’t necessarily delve into the technicalities of it. Maybe it’s a look into a court built inside North America’s deepest cave…or a human-interest story about a couple who found their way into each other’s hearts through the game…or it’s a humor take on how the game changed up a long-standing family tradition. We’re open to compelling stories that have a pickleball tie, but lifestyle hook.
We are open to all ideas—whether it’s for columns, puzzles, or a never-before-seen pickleball feature.
