Welcome to PickleballMAX! We’re excited you’re here!
PickleballMAX is a website to help pickleball players – from the newbie to the advanced player, maximize their picklebility by learning everything there is to know about pickleball.
PickleballMAX was created by Todd and Teresa in 2015. A couple of years before that, Todd’s mother-in-law invited him to play pickleball at her church. At the time, Teresa had never heard of pickleball (like most other people back in the day), but Todd remembered playing in gym class as a kid.
Todd played tennis in college, so pickleball was a natural sport to try as an adult. Todd started spending his lunch hours playing pickleball indoors on a gym floor at our church. He loved it and quickly became addicted!
PickleballMAX was Born
Seeing that Todd caught the pickleball bug and started dedicating more time to it, Teresa encouraged him to start a pickleball blog. Hence, PickleballMAX was born and the rest is history!
Todd became an IPTPA Level II Certified Pickleball Teaching Professional in 2018. He has provided instruction through lessons and clinics to tons of students over the years. He is currently an instructor for the Ohio Pickleball Academy at The Pickle Lodge.
In addition to teaching, Todd has also:
- been a head tournament referee,
- worked at a Community Center overseeing 150+ pickleball players,
- managed tournaments,
- ran tournament desks for many large tournaments
Teresa joined Todd to manage and market PickleballMAX. She assists with pickleball tournaments. She can also be found talking with students and being a ‘ball girl’ at his clinics. In 2023, she wrote a pickleball devotional book titled Pickleball Is [Not] Life.
