Highlights from PPA Media Day 

PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA – Media day is exciting for both the pros and those of us behind the camera, too.

The players arrived at the studio ready to strike their best game face. 


More than 100 pros were photographed over the course of two days. 

There were some especially fun moments, like when Jaume Martinez Vich jumped at least 50 times so that perfect shot of his backhand could be captured. And Christian Alshon, of course, needed to hit a tweener for his action shot.

Meanwhile, World No. 1 singles star Federico Staksrud was traumatized by the 'What’s in the Box Challenge' that was conducted for the PPA Tour's Instagram account. 

Alex and Angie Walker posed for an adorable sister photoshoot. 

Chuck Taylor showed off the first wooden paddle he ever played with alongside his current JOOLA paddle.

The incredible team from PickleballTV was there as well, filming some fun videos of select pros that will soon be broadcast across the globe.

Basically, all the promotional content with pickleball's brightest stars was shot over the last couple of days.

And we’ve got all the pictures to prove it.
