How It All Started – the dink pickleball

“I recently wrote an essay for MBA school about how our family’s discovery of pickleball has brought all three generations back onto the court together. I stated that my short-term career goal was to build the largest pickleball community in existence, allowing pickleball to bring millions more together, like it did our family. Clichés aside, I love the game and recently launched the dink. media site, starting with a newsletter, to bring a fresh voice into the sport.”
– Thomas Shields, Founder, the dink.
