About Us

We are a family owned company, that consists of a grandson/grandmother, lethal duo, who can not get enough of Pickleball!

My grandmother Barb, started playing pickleball in the summer of 2015. During this time, I was in the hospital fighting for my life, battling a very rare blood disease, Severe Aplastic Anemia. Three years after high dose chemotherapy, full body radiation, two stem cell/ bone marrow transplants from two different donors across the world, AND total left hip replacement surgery, I was on my way to a healthy recovery. January 2016, is when I started to feel better. To get me back to my active athletic self, my grandma brought me to our local YMCA to try playing pickleball. From the very first time I stepped on the court, I was hooked. Since then, pickleball has literally taken over my life. April 2017, we became the proud owner’s of Top Notch Pickleball and TopNotchPickleball.com. With my new found love and passion for the game, I decided to take my skills, knowledge, and teaching experience to the next level. December 2017, I became a Level II International Certified Pickleball Teaching Professional and a Certified Rating Specialist through the IPTPA.  I absolutely love working with players of all skill levels, thats why as a teaching professional, my goal is to help as many players either learn how to play or sharpen their skills to playing better pickleball. As a 4.5 rated player, I travel the country competing in as many tournaments as possible, constantly pushing myself to achieve more.
