In a recent study conducted by the Pickleball Union, Louisiana has been identified as the worst state for playing pickleball, while Arizona claims the top spot as the best state for enthusiasts of this rapidly growing sport. The analysis factored in various criteria, including state interest based on monthly searches relative to population size, the availability of outdoor and indoor courts, average annual precipitation, and average temperature, which was set at 72°F as a reference point.
