Between the hard surface pickleball that doesn't get wiped down, to the close quarters of the the pickleball lines, to the partner that I frequently bump into, I've decided to hang up my paddle for the foreseeable future.

Wear disposable glove to handle ball
Play on the tennis courts.
Much more room to avoid partner!

But the glove can be disposed of after the game, but the hand will still be attached to the body!
