If you haven't heard about Zane Navratil and his infamous spin serve, you haven't been paying attention.
Zane Navratil, 26, started playing pickleball in 2013 after claiming three high school tennis State Championships in Wisconsin. Zane continued his tennis career playing Division III tennis at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where he earned a Master's Degree in Accounting and achieved Academic All-American status. Upon graduation, Zane moved to Milwaukee, WI and took a position as an auditor for Deloitte & Touche, an internationally recognized public accounting firm. Pickleball, however, was calling his name, and he left his auditor position in 2020 to play and teach pickleball full time. Zane is currently rated #7 in Doubles (6.57) and #5 in Singles (7.03) by DUPR. He competes in multiple tournaments a month and rarely walks away without a medal. He also offers pickleball clinics across the country and is known for a teaching style that is both efficient, methodical & informative, as well as engaging and fun. His driven and competitive personality is well balanced with his silly sense of humor and ability to have fun with his partners, competitors and students.
