OUR TEAM | OUR STORY

Ali Quintero

Growing up in Venezuela's impoverished areas, playing tennis seemed unreachable due to financial struggles. Yet, my passion ignited, driving my determination. With entrepreneurial fervor, I embarked on crafting top-notch pickleball gear, merging affordability with style and performance. My goal extends beyond business; it's about demonstrating that commitment and excellence can overcome any obstacle. Daily, I'm propelled by the urge to impart pickleball's teachings to upcoming generations, particularly those confronting similar obstacles. Each victory strengthens my ambitions, propelling me to envision grander dreams and set loftier goals.

Yen Cárdenas

I was raised with the inspiring example of my father, who not only pursued his education but also tirelessly supported his siblings, lifting them from poverty. From a young age, I learned success required hard work, dedication, and courage. For over 25 years, I've dedicated myself to television, earning accolades like the Emmy, Promax, Telly, and Imagen Awards. TV isn't just a job—it's my passion. I believe in the power of a united team to achieve extraordinary feats.
