Zane Navratil Pickleball October 2021 Newsletter

Zane Navratil Pickleball October 2021 Newsletter

Welcome to the first installment of my ZNP newsletter!

Every month I’ll subject you to my random nonsense and keep you up to date with what I’m up to – both on and off the court. You’ll get information on my clinic, camp and tournament schedules, hear important and exciting announcements, receive tips on how to improve your pickleball game and for what it’s worth, hear my take on pickleball issues of the day! 

September marked the last bit of summer here in Wisconsin, so I tried to fit in as much teaching as I could while the weather was nice. I taught 40+ full days of clinics this summer – thank you to everybody who attended!

As much as I like you guys, I’m looking forward to a little break in October with Jenny (my high school girlfriend). After the Texas Open, we’re off to Mexico to celebrate our 8 year anniversary of being together.

I am incredibly excited to be drafted into the very first season of Major League Pickleball.

I was selected to the Discovery Warriors team and can’t wait to team up with Tyson McGuffin, Vivienne David and Lea Jansen. Only the top 16 men and women were drafted, so it’s very good company!

Major League Pickleball is the very first professional pickleball league, and is another incredible sign for the sport. For more information on Major League Pickleball, check out their website here.
