In my opinion the game just doesn't translate as well to singles. Maybe sucks was a bit dramatic, I just greatly prefer doubles. The same could be said for my feelings about tennis as well, but not to the same extent.And there's the problem, pickleball singles sucks. Of all the times I've seen these people play pickleball there's never been a singles match, only doubles. If there's a game that has singles and doubles and only one of them is fun to play then that's not good.
