On Monday May 1 at 8am EDT, Dean Matt (aka MuchoDeanAero aka The Pickleball Pilot), a Sarasota-based pickleball addict and pilot since high school departed Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) and set a World Record:
Most States in which a Pickleball Game was played in a 30 day period: 44 States.
Most days, I played two Pickleball Games in two different states; some days: Three!
I flew my plane, a Turbo Cessna 206H six passenger aircraft while making 48 stops along the way.
Local and national media covered this adventure and the local pickleball community.
Dean was joined by fellow pilots, members from the pickleball community, his wife and more at various stops along the way. The result was a TONS ' O FUN pickleball and aviation-related adventure.
