PicklePod 19: Pro Lee Whitwell gets paid in beer

by The Dink Media Team on

In the most recent episode of PicklePod with Tyson Apostol and Thomas Shields, are joined by Lee Whitwell.

MLP MVP, fan favorite and Dink Award winner Lee Whitwell finally joined PicklePod, and let me tell ya, she did not disappoint.

Not only did she tell us the story of how she got into pickleball (spoiler, she was bribed with a case of Coors Light), but she also told us about her new gig in pb and of course, what she thought of Major League Pickleball.
