My name is Christine Lee. I started playing paddle seriously in 2019 and by chance was recruited by Leslie Martino to help out Katrina Glusac, Mike Rogers, and Daniel Wullf with city tournaments. We became the founding members of Pop Paddle Venice and felt the dire need to keep building community. I’ve been able to help by running the IG page and being a liaison to the Venice Rec & Parks and the Venice Chamber of Commerce. Our Venice courts inspire me every day and with The Paddle Times I am excited to use my experience as a player, filmmaker, and writer to document the our beloved sport.
