    MLP Season 1 was fantastic! Thank you to everyone who put this together and for streaming the broadcast live, so much fun to watch. Iā€™m new to pickleball and Iā€™m learning a lot from watching these pros- hoping for many more MLP seasons to come!! I missed the live final, is there anywhere to stream this?

    The women did very well in the singles against the men.

    Thank you very much. Great idea for the game of pickleball. I hope MLP is using the USA Pickleball Official Rules. Not the PPATour pick the rules you want format. Really liked the little portfolio snippets of the players, but maybe put them in before the match starts and they wouldn’t have been cut short. Very nice scoreboard. V. David and S. Barr IMO are the best examples of great sportsmanship and having fun on the court. Frazier and JW Johnson IMO will be the men’s team to beat next year after off-season drills/practice. The announcers talked too much during live play. The interview w/ Whitwell in the middle of the men’s match was just rude. And all the talking during the Johnson/Frazier vs McGuffin/Navratil match was just discourteous to the players and viewers alike.

    Dear Major League Pickleball. IMO, your tournament really upped the standards of pickleball and I feel, created a first TRUE professional tournament. Instead of two completely different versions of pickleball tournaments, each trying to undermind the other. Great format. Thank you for posting at 1080p. Great video quality and camera angles. I think you used the official USA Pickleball Rules… Great. Really nice venue. IMO, it would have been nice to have two refs at each medal game, with a few too many missed faults. Unfortunately, there really aren’t any professional announcers in pickleball. For my values, the only announcer in pickleball that does a great job; doesn’t talk during live play, offers good information between rallies, is Dominic Catalano. IMO. Almost all pickleball announcers talk over live play which means at your venue, they talked over miked players. Many people in ‘Chat’ said the same. Is it professional to say, "mom", "youngster", "the 14-year-old", "clean up your room"? What was the reason to mic up players if the announcers constantly talked over the sounds? As you can tell, I’m pretty passionate about wanting to listen to the sounds of pickleball. Oh, and to end on a positive note; as Zane Navratil said. "Great breakfast burritos". šŸ™‚

    First time ever (I think). The players are miked up. That is fantastic and I think it will be the future of all series. I’m not sure what the players think though.

    Again, thank you very much for putting on an incredible tournament. And IMO, a game-changing tournament for the sport of pickleball.
