In this exciting addition of The Turn, we veer away from golf and focus on a great "golf-related activity"...Pickleball! Pickleball is an exciting sport that combines elements of Tennis, Badminton, and Ping Pong.  With nearly 3.5 million players, it’s one of the fastest growing sports in America. Kris Strauss and Jared Cohen are joined by Mike Barnes, the Co-CEO of Selkirk Sport, one of the industry’s fastest growing companies, and their paddles are used by many of the game’s premier players and coaches/instructors. They also were recently named the first “Preferred Pickleball Partner” of Troon. Mike provides a great insight of the game both at an amateur and professional level plus pulls back the curtain on how his family owned business created around this popular sport has become what it is today!
