Owen Wilson Plays Pickleball

Do you ever just have a good feeling about a person? Owen Wilson has always been the type of person to give off that positive feeling and it has been solidified by his on-screen characters year after year. And now, on top of playing Hansel, Hutch, Nick Campbell, Lightning McQueen, Roy O’Bannon, and John Beckwith…he’s also playing Pickleball! Wowwwww

That's How You Pepper a Steak!

On NPR’s ‘Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me’ podcast, Wilson was enthused to tell the hosts about the game and his recent obsession. Like all of us, Pickleball is an outlet for a mean competitive streak and like most of us, he was under the illusion that he would be able to master it after a few games to 11. He plays in a regular group with growing rivalries and some Pickleball ‘beef’ starting between players.  Listen to a clip below or the full episode here.

Wilson would be a top pick in The Master’s Pro-Am event later this year. Not only for the good time, but also for a real chance at bringing home the gold. Hopefully, he really can pick up the game quick – it would be great to see him paired up with a pro in November. 

Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion.​

Here’s a quick video to catch you up on his top hits and best known catchphrase.
