    Abbie Brooks


    Abbie has been an athlete all her life. She comes from a large family of 7 kids, who all played tennis growing up. Having played tennis for 15+ years, she has a great understanding of singles and doubles strategy, technique, as well as footwork and agility training. Abbie has played on the pickleball pro tour from early-2016 to mid-2018. She has Gold, Silver & Bronze medals under her belt from multiple 5.0/pro tournaments in singles, doubles & mixed doubles events. When she gave birth to Kinsley, her daughter, priorities changed the course of her life a little bit and she pulled back from tournaments altogether. Being that Kinsley is now 2 years old, Abbie is ready to get back out there and work her way back on the tour, all while bringing you the best tips on how to improve your pickleball game as a whole. Abbie will be joining us Monday, May 3rd. Please stop by the pickleball courts and introduce yourself. She is looking forward to meeting you.
