Zane Navratil Pickleball January 5th, 2024 Newsletter

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!

Jenny and I had a successful trip back home to WI! It included a couple of Milwaukee Bucks games, dinners with friends and family, pickleball with my college tennis coach and teammate, shopping, Christmas decorating, and, of course, Christmas movies. This sparked a debate between myself and Jenny about the top 5 Christmas movies. Here are mine. What are yours?

  1. Home Alone
  2. Elf
  3. Four Christmases
  4. The Santa Clause
  5. The Grinch (Honorable mention to Die Hard)

It was great to disconnect a little bit and spend some time with family!

Congrats to the winners of our final giveaways! 👏

Eric Lee, Robert Slutsky, Jeff Vongjesda, Nolan Henslick, Lauren Stroh, Angela Deng, Brandon Cirbo, Alfredo Pons, Mike Dai, and Maggie Lee all received a pair of Thorlo pickleball socks! Kaycee Wells will receive a Picklemall swag bag, and Eric Brown won a 3-month Picklemall membership!

New Year, New Website! I’m beyond excited to unveil my NEW and IMPROVED Zane Navratil Pickleball website. It’s one-stop browsing for all my content including YouTube videos, Newsletters, Podcast Episodes, and Shop.

You can always catch Thomas Shields and me on the Picklepod where we discuss all things pickleball. And don’t forget, I’ll answer any and all questions if you donate to SAN. Just add your questions in the memo section of your donation and ask away!

The results are in for our first Stop Alzheimers Now Big Give fundraiser. I’m super proud to announce that betwen Altaf Merchant and me, we raised $65,000 over the last month. With corporate matches, that means $195,000 will go towards alzheimer’s research.

Much gratitude to all those who donated to this very worthy and personal cause.

As a special bonus, since I ended up raising more money, we should all look forward to a special performance by Mr. Merchant. 🕺

Now that Pickle & Social has officially opened its doors, I’ll be visiting with a few other pickleball pros in a couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to trying out their craft food, signature drinks, and of course, their indoor and outdoor pickleball courts!

You can check out their facility, menus, entertainment offerings and see when a location will be opening near you!

A couple weeks ago MTE announced their new Travel Packs, convenient to keep up your daily dose of wellness even while on the road.

Whether you choose the Travel Packs or full-size bags, click the button below to get an automatic 20% off + free shipping on your order.

Just because I’m traveling and unavailable for private lessons, does not mean you still can’t get coaching from me or my team of coaches. With the MyPickeballCoach app, we watch your and your partner’s actual game play, which makes the feedback and advice very personalized.

Try it now to get your game where you want it to be.

My Yobow is my constant travel campanion to pickleball tournaments. It’s my go-to for muscle warmup and recovery, and as one of the smallest massage guns, makes it great for packing.

Order yours in my shop, and you’ll receive free shipping and a free warmup band with the code ‘zane.’

Tune into my YouTube channel for tips and tricks to add to your pickleball reportoire. I also love getting your feedback and ideas for future content you’d like to see.
