Zane Navratil Pickleball May 3rd, 2024 Newsletter

April was wild – 3 tournaments in a row in Houston, Los Angeles, and then St. George, Utah. Travis and I were able to snag a bronze at the LA Open. Travis carried as I was limited in mobility due to some minor back spasms, but I’m back to full health…until I played singles at the Red Rock tournament!

I haven’t been playing singles for awhile now. It used to be my favorite event, but some nagging injuries last year made it a lot less fun, and I’m enjoying doubles a lot more. I’ve still got it though, apparently haha! I took down JW Johnson in the 2nd round and then Pablo Tellez before falling to Christian Alshon in the quarters. I was able to sneak in a chainsaw against him! 🤭

In puppy news, Arlo has a new hobby: destroying toys!
