Earlier the billionaire had shared that he has played pickleball which was created in the ‘60s by a few friends who were bored and looking for a new activity. He wrote in GatesNotes, “So, they found a net, a Wiffle ball, some ping-pong paddles, and created a game on an old badminton court that the entire family could play together.”

He also played tennis with Roger Federer and shared that the experience made him feel very nervous. Bill Gates shared earlier, “He asked me to be his partner in a doubles match at Seattle’s KeyArena versus John Isner, who is ranked in the top 25 worldwide, and another Seattleite, Mike McCready from the band Pearl Jam.”

He added, “I play a lot of tennis, but it is one thing to practice drills with your coach or go up against a friend. It is another to play in front of 16,000 people in a basketball arena. If you think too much or let your muscles tense up, you end up hitting bad shots, which makes you more tense, and suddenly you’re stuck in a vicious cycle.”
