Pickleball REWIND – 2016 US Open Men's Pro GOLD

Pickleball REWIND – 2016 US Open Men's Pro GOLD

This week Pickleball Channel is jumping back into its archives to pull out the ten best minuets from a great match in pickleball history. 2016 was the Minto US Open’s inaugural year, and it was making big waves. It had one of the largest cash prizes, a national television broadcast deal, and one of the first official ‘pro’ divisions.

Take a look with us at the very first US Open Men’s Pro Doubles Gold Medal Match. This game was originally aired on CBS Sports and was quite a show. Hometown hero Kyle Yates and his partner Dave Weinbach were put to the test by the team of Daniel Moore and Wes Gabrielsen.

Has the sport of pickleball, and especially pro play evolved since its early days of the US Open? Watch this match showcasing the best 2016 had to offer and let us know what you think.

    What’s the blocked shot statistic (shown between games 1 and 2) and why would it be useful to know the number of "blocked" shots?
