PicklePod 15: A Billionaire is Taking Over Pickleball

by The Dink Media Team

In the most recent episode of PicklePod with Tyson Apostol and Thomas Shields, are joined by 14yo “Phenom” and #1 Ranked Mother-Daughter Duo

First recurring guest Zane Navratil joins the PicklePod to break down all the chaos that’s happened since last episode. We discuss the massive investment in the PPA, the new contracts and how the players are reacting. Zane talks about where he stands and how the APP, USA Pickleball and MLP are impacted by the recent developments. It’s a crazy time to be in pickleball, and Zane is right in the middle of it.
