Pro pickleball player, JW Johnson (18 years old and with a birthday around the corner), put on a show at the APP Hilton Head Pickleball Open! Johnson brought home a pair of gold medals in pro mixed doubles and pro men’s doubles . On the mixed side, Johnson partnered with reigning #1, Simone Jardim, for a first-time partnership (and a 24-year age gap between the two… don’t you love pickleball bringing all ages together!). When asked the key to success for their first time playing together, Johnson noted he “just did what [he] was told.” Jardim seemed to be the strategist, while Johnson was the executioner. Then, on the men’s side, Johnson partnered with fellow teenager, Dylan Frazier, to take down AJ Koller and Callan Dawson in a lob-centric final. As we noted at the top of this newsletter, the lob is definitely the hot shot as of late . On the pro women’s doubles side, Lea Jansen and Vivienne David had a day, taking home the gold medal . These two surely need to team up again in the future, as they had some great chemistry on the court.
