How It Began
Pickleball took over with a wave in Collier County. It started in small groups and grew rapidly with enthusiasm from area participants and officials.
Soon new pickleball courts were built and the attraction grew even more. Collier County now hosts the Minto US Open Pickleball Championships.
There wasn’t a conveniently located store to supply the local pickleball community so the Pickleball Pro Shop was created to serve the ever growing needs of the pickleball community.
The founding pickleball fans are Jim Ludwig and Chadwick Edwards.
