In this week’s podcast I share some of myself with you. More specifically, some of my pickleball journey.
From first hitting a pickleball through the medal stand in Senior Mixed Pro at this last weekend’s PPA tournament in Orlando.
I share it with you so that you know two things:
1. You can achieve whatever your goal is in pickleball and
2. As long as you remain curious, there is always more to learn – more to grow – in pickleball.
In the riff, I share with you how we handled being up 10-5 with a put-away shot in the gold medal match to being down 10-11 in the same game.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
