When I first got into Pickleball, I thought it would just end up being a hobby. Until everything changed…
In 2020, I had just come off of a freak accident where I consecutively broke both of my feet leaving me bedridden for 6 months. This essentially ended my college tennis career at UCLA, and I felt empty. By the time I recovered, I had no direction in terms of what I was doing, no community I belonged to, and I had neglected picking up other sports as hobbies.
It was in the midst of the covid 19 pandemic, and I had been hearing about pickleball on social media. Eventually, my roommate's mom convinced me to give it a try. I didn’t have much of an expectation, and I had no idea where the sport was going to take me next..
As the story goes for most people, after I played the first time, I was hooked. I had never had so much fun while also getting great exercise, all while socializing with my friends. I knew the sport would become a big part of my life. From that moment on, I made it a point to study the game and decipher the different strategies immediately so that I could get to a higher level as fast as I could. Within a few months I had already played my first tournaments and had resurrected my competitive instinct that had long passed away with my tennis career. I reawakened a fire and drive that I hadn’t felt in years.
But Earlier in 2022, I discovered what my true purpose in Pickleball really was..
Once I started coaching, I realized that my true calling was to help other players take their game to a higher level. Growing up, I was always obsessed with creating different outside of the box training methods that could give me an edge over my opponents. Right when I got into Pickleball, I started experimenting…
At certain point, I knew that I needed to share my findings, so I called up my old college roommate Drew, and we started making the best Pickleball content that we could muster up.
