"Not to brag, but I totally beat [Orlando Bloom] in front of everyone."
Katy Perry left her heart on the pickleball court over the weekend — in more ways than one. On Monday, the singer commemorated her Firework Foundation's inaugural Light Up the Court pickleball tournament with an Instagram video documenting the day.
On Sunday, many of Perry's A-list friends, including her fiancé Orlando Bloom, came out to support her organization. In the montage shared to social, Perry can be seen wearing a green-and-white miniskirt and tied-up T-shirt while mingling with friends and attendees. The video captured portions of the tournament before Perry took to the courts herself. Naturally, the star faced off against Bloom, the father of her daughter Daisy Dove, and took home the W (according to her caption).
After defeating her beau, Perry forwent the traditional sportsman-like handshake and instead planted a kiss on Bloom's lips.
"My mom brought (maybe even forced) her love for pickleball upon our family, and now we’ve decided to use those pickle powers for good ⚡️," she wrote alongside the clip, explaining the genesis of her love for the sport.
"Yesterday @fireworkfoundation had our inaugural Light Up The Court pickleball tournament in Santa Barbara to raise money for scholarships, more camps, and programming to bring the arts to kids from underserved communities! (And not to brag, but I totally beat @OrlandoBloom in front of everyone too 😈🙃)."
"You’ve all helped ignite the light in some amazing kids," she concluded. "See you next year! 🎇🎆🏻."
The couple has appeared to bond over sporting events through the years of their relationship. Over the summer, the two attended the 2023 Wimbledon Tennis Championships, where they took in a match while also exchanging a few smooches. They've also recently connected over their sobriety. In June, Perry revealed that both she and Bloom had been sober for three months.
"For me, it was an opportunity to reset. We reset after President's Day, and it was a great opportunity to just let my body bounce back a little bit," she previously told People. "I've had a pretty good relationship with just finding balance.”
