EP 83 - Pickleball Champ w/Gizmo
Social Media: @gizmo_pickleball
Rising quickly through the pickleball ranks and new addition to the pro level, J "Gizmo" Hall has continued to dismantle opponents with a youthful flamboyance and social media approach to competitive pickleball. Still in his first two years, Gizmo has attended multiple tournaments with top finishes and attributes a portion of his success to his fitness. Being a full time Firefighter/Paramedic has sharpened his stamina and mental perseverance. He strives to grow the sport of pickleball by being an ambassador for a newer generation of players and spectators. Heavily involved in social media and the player community, Gizmo provides a detailed look inside the world of tournament play through Facebook and Instagram posts and a series of videos soon to hit YouTube. Overcoming adversity at a young age has taught him that every day is a gift, and to never stop chasing your dreams.
In addition to Pickleball, Gizmo is a youth motivational speaker and using Pickleball as a way to pour into the youth of today, teaching them that it is ok to be different.
When Gizmo isn't on the road at pickleball tournaments, you can find him dividing his time between the court and Pickleball Farm, where he lives with his wife and kids in Virginia.
