Tennis Channel and Tennis Magazine are heading to the kitchen line and are all-in on pickleball this week. At this week’s PPA Tour Select Medical Cup (June 9-12 at Lifetime in San Clemente, CA), Tennis Channel will be expanding its network coverage of the PPA, broadcasting Semifinal Saturday on its network for the first time ever from 2pm-6pm PT on June 11.
Tennis Channel will also carry the tournament’s Championship Sunday on June 12th from 10am-4pm PT. Commentators Noah Eagle and Morgan Evans will provide on-air analysis during both days.
The coverage continues in print as Tennis Magazine’s first-ever joint tennis/pickleball edition of its magazine will be hot off the presses and available to purchase on June 14. Visit your local newsstand to purchase a copy of the issue that will become a piece of pickleball history from the moment it hits the shelves. Look for some familiar names and faces inside, including Ben Johns, Callie Smith, and Jessie Irvine.
If you want a sneak peek, visit Tennis.com/pickleball from June 9-12, where digital versions of the pickleball articles will be featured. This coverage is just the beginning in a longer-term partnership between the entities.
Tennis and pickleball working together in harmony? We like the sound of that.
