Tom Brady is setting himself up for success in sports.
Not as a current NFL quarterback, but rather as a businessman and proprietor of a top pickleball team.
According to Fox News, the potential Hall of Famer bought a share in a Major League Pickleball team.
On Wednesday, league officials revealed that Brady had made his partial purchase.
As a shareholder in the Knighthead Capital Management, LLC ownership group, he is investing in professional pickleball.
Kim Clijsters, a former Grand Slam tennis winner, Kaitlyn Kerr, Callie Simpkins, and Matt Alvarez are joining Brady in the venture.
According to CNN, the sport, which resembles tennis in some ways, has grown immensely popular among American audiences over the past ten years.
Pickleball is played on a small tennis-style court with players striking a ball in a way akin to ping-pong.
Brady and his partners are “thrilled” to join Major League Pickleball as club owners, according to Steve Kuhn, the league’s creator.
According to CNN, Kuhn stated that the investors are “champions in their industries and will now be champions for Major League Pickleball.”
The league’s founder praised the addition, saying,“We are thrilled to welcome them to our unrivaled roster of strategic partners, who are individually and collectively instrumental in helping us elevate professional pickleball, showcase the joy it brings to millions of people around the globe, and further our ’40 by 30’ campaign — our mission to reach 40 million pickleball players by 2030.”
