Pickleball started as a hobby after being introduced to the sport by family and friends, but quickly became a passion for us. Our enthusiasm for Pickleball has resulted in forging hundreds of friendships and personal connections with people all over the US and internationally. Our passion to compete on the court has led us to develop our first paddle. As parents, we have shared our love of the game with our children, which is why we will also be focused on Junior paddles primarily for children 4-10 in the very near future. Developing Juniors can help to grow the future of Pickleball, which is our ultimate goal. Additionally, we have identified a need to start a conversation on Mental Health Awareness. We are starting a blog called "The Reset" to focus on how Pickleball can impact individual mental health in a positive way. There is still a stigma with seeking help for mental health and we want to continue to try to change that stigma because it takes great strength to find the courage to seek help and continuous self-improvement. Pickleball has become an outlet for us to be able to temporarily forget about the daily challenges we face from work, family, or other personal circumstances. Our journey in Pickleball has been very similar to many others and we would like to continue to give back to this sport and support you on your journey, on and off the court.
See you on the courts!!!
