    Into the Vortex with Six Zero with Dale Young

    Into the Vortex with Six Zero with Dale Young

    In this episode, I talk with Dale Young, cofounder of Six Zero. We take a journey down the vortex of Six Zero's explosive growth in the pickleball paddle market.
    As a new entrant to the market, Dale accidentally became the founder of a highly successful pickleball brand for something that was only meant to be a hobby.
    We discuss Dale's work in Africa before pickleball, innovations that he has brought to the paddle, and thoughts and plans for the future of pickleball and paddle technology.
    This is a super interesting discussion from the cofounder of one of the fastest-growing brands in pickleball. Enjoy the ride!
