Zane Navratil Pickleball September 2022 Newsletter

August was a relatively chill month (compared to most) with only two tournaments: MLP and the APP New Jersey Open. The New Jersey Open wasn’t my best performance, but I’ll have a chance to redeem myself with the APP Chicago Open and the APP Atlanta Open right around the corner!

A chill month gave Jenny and I the opportunity to explore Austin a bit!

Well, we came up just short of another MLP title, but overall the 2nd MLP of the year was a success. We went undefeated in pool play even after losing Parris Todd to a hamstring injury in our second match. We won our next two matches with alternates Rachel Rettger and Lacy Schneemann, and they crushed it. Parris made a comeback for the final match, but unfortunately we lost to the Ranchers. The next MLP is in Columbus, Ohio October 14-16, and Team BLQK is hungry!

Registration is now open for these APP Academy clinics! Learn from the top players and teachers!

  • Griffin, GA – Monday, September 12th
  • Houston, TX – Monday, October 24th

The first Pickle and Social location is expected to open in Gwinnett, GA in the Spring/Summer of 2022! Pickle and Social will be a sweet hangout spot with pickleball, cornhole (us Wisconsinites know this as “bags”), drinks, music, lawn games, and more! A second location will open up in Alpharetta in Fall of 2023, and maybe more 🤫🤷🏽‍♂️….Stay tuned!

While pickleball is easy to pick up, it’s also very easy to pick up an injury while playing! Many injuries stem from improper warmups. Make that a thing of the past with the Yobow band and the Yobow massage pistol. Use code Zane at checkout for free shipping on your order and stay injury free!

I’ve been training hard in the offseason, and I still have a ton of new and used Franklin signature paddles available for sale on my website with free shipping!
