Jack Munro is a pickleball OG. He picked up the game before it was cool and was a junior national champion a decade ago.

After a long hiatus, he is back to reclaim his throne in America's fastest-growing sport. Zane and Jack are joined by Carlos Di Laura who is putting together a pro pickleball playground and training center in Austin.
