We are excited to announce Steff Angeles as our winner of the Baddle First Proish Instagram contest. Steff is a dynamic, energetic player who was re-introduced to the game in 2020. And, like most of us, became hooked quickly.
He loves that great pickleball memories are always just a swing of the paddle away. Us, too! And he enjoys the social aspect of the game. You can meet someone, play with (or against) them, and walk off of the courts with a new pickleball partner and friend. That doesn't stop Steff from going hard, though. His play is analytical and competitive, which is also one of our favorite aspects of the game and it's why we started making premium pickleball gear in the first place.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this contest! Especially those who made it to our top three finalists. The pickleball community is such a wonderful one. We're lucky to be a part of such a supportive crew.
We'll leave you with some words of wisdom from Steff. Whenever he or his partner miss a put-away shot, he says, "Keep taking the shot!" Good advice for off the court, too.
