Default Engage Pickleball " Balls "

Recently the Villages changed the Pickleballs to " Engage Pickleballs ".

They are terrible, cheap, soft, and have IMO changed Pickleball totally.

They are soft and a cheap replacement .

Bottom Line Buy Cheap...Buy Twice .

Get Rid of them . They are ... LOUSY...!!!

Buy Cheap.....Buy Twice ++


They really are terrible , very few players players like them...so why... ?

Who made the decision on switching..?

Free? Isn't that what your amenity fees pay for? With the fees going up wouldn't you expect a better quality of equipment, not less?

If it makes the sound from the courts quieter, they get my vote!

They buy your own. Tennis players don't get free balls.

This is going to be fodder for punsters. We have some great ones.

AND......….No one expects The Villages to provide golf balls.

Balls said the Queen.

They have no pencil sharpeners in any of the art rooms but we art people are managing to soldier on.

gracie, i think you miss the op's point.. TV has always offered free pickleballs as they do softballs, water volleyballs, and many other freebies for the various programs, I guess we are used to a certain level of quality especially from TV. As far as changing the balls to another brand I would like to know who gave input into the decision. We have a Pickleball club here that has a lot of input did they ok them?
