In this episode, I talk with Steve Wong who has a long history in Pickleball as he started playing the game in 1991.  Steve has done so much in the sport including being a founder of the USA Pickleball Association, winning a national championship, and starting two Pickleball companies (Onix and Armour Pickleball).  Steve has seen so much growth in the sport yet he still has an ultimate dream for Pickleball.
