Agassi’s profound love for pickleball

Apart from playing in the Pickleball Slam, Agassi is also on the board of a company responsible for the widely used pickleball rating system. Following his tennis retirement, Agassi has become fond of pickleball.

Agassi stated the reason, “We all grew up with a racket in our hands. It became more about just how much enjoyment we got out of it and how much it has added to our lives since then. From that moment, it’s been like a thought process on what would be cool to do for Pickleball Slam, too.”
