PicklePod Ep 61: APP making global power moves

by The Dink Media Team on

The boys have been on the road and are back with some classic stories. Thomas went toe-to-toe with Jay Devilliers on the court before attending Ed Sheeran in Detroit. Zane ended a match in the most savage way possible. He recounts one of the strangest on-court injuries that you will ever hear. The discussion leads to the APP’s new growth strategy which appears to be an international endeavor.
