About Zane

In the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic I took the risk of quitting my stable job as an auditor for Deloitte & Touche in pursuit of a career in pickleball. Looking back at it, I’m pretty happy with that choice!
My dad first introduced me to pickleball when I was a senior in high school. I was a good tennis player having won three Division II State Championships, so naturally I didn’t give pickleball the time of day until I got my butt kicked by some guys in their 60s and 70s!
I fell in love with the sport and continued playing through my time at UW-Whitewater where I played tennis and earned Academic All-American status!
I am 25 years old and live in Brookfield, WI which is a suburb of Milwaukee. I live with my girlfriend Jenny and my puppy Murray. My hobbies include eating tacos on Tuesdays, managing Murray’s Instagram account (@Meant2beMurray), and hiking!
