PicklePod Ep 53: Fines, ejections and Pickleball’s WWE play

by The Dink Media Team on

The first on-site DQ for paddle delamination, pickleball pro flips the bird to courtside heckler and a new rebel will sell you a juiced up paddle. We thought we could get away with taking a week off but there is too much happening in the world of pickleball. We cover the Newport Beach Shootout, US Open and results from the infamous Red Rock Open paddle challenge.
