Social Network

The Kitchen

Dinkheads.com is also a social network for the most social game in the athletic world, with a ground-breaking discussion board we call (what else?!) “THE KITCHEN.” You’ll be able to share tips and tricks, compare notes on gear, get advice on health and training, sound off on rules changes and strategy, and trade notes on pickleball retirement communities. Who knows? You may even be able to chat with a favorite pickleball YouTube influencer—or one of your heroes in the pickleball pro ranks! You’ll also be able to get in touch with fellow Dinkheads through our networking forum to arrange play in your local neighborhoods or while traveling.

If you are as crazy about pickleball as we are, you’ll be spending whatever free time you have left off the pickleball court at Dinkheads.com.


Our Team

Dinkheads.com is owned and operated by Jesse and Michelle Malkin. Married for 27 years, the Malkins have been avid ping-pong players since college. Jesse, a 4.0 pickleball player, was introduced to the sport at his local Colorado Springs gym in November 2019. After intense lobbying, he convinced Michelle (now a 3.5 player) to give it a try in March 2020. They recently won a bronze medal at a local tournament in 4.0 mixed doubles.
