OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Pickleball is one signature away from becoming Washington's official state sport.

The state House approved the measure on a bipartisan vote on Friday. The bill passed the state Senate last month and now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee for his signature.

If signed into law, pickleball would join a long list of official state symbols, including Palouse Falls as the state waterfall, the Columbian mammoth as the state fossil, and the Marmota Olympus, also known as the Olympic marmot, as the state endemic mammal.
