Look Good On & Off The Court

We all have to start somewhere… and the majority of us didn’t start as pro’s! At Mojo Pickleball, we don’t care where you’re at or where you’re going, only that you go there in style! Our customers have swagger… they smile on the courts and are happy to be alive and kickin’… playing a game they love, not because they are the best, but because playing Pickleball makes them happier. They want to look good on and off the court, and that’s where we come in.

The Team

It’s not big, just effective! <that’s what she said>

Vicki’s “Mrs. Mojo” background is in volleyball, but being almost 6′ tall and athletic, Pickleball comes naturally. She is knocking on the door of the 4.5 level and plays 4-5 times a week around Wilmington, NC. She is a power player and loves to drill… for hours!
Mojo plays singles, doubles and mixed doubles and is on his way to 4.5. A tournament player, Mojo is fiercely competitive, and plays with a deep passion and love for the game. Mojo is the designer of our gear and runs the day to day operations of Mojo Pickleball.
Anne Merrills is the best 3.5 player on team Mojo. She is fun, energetic and always the life of party. She joined team Mojo in the summer of 2021 and we couldn’t be happier to have her. She plays with the new Black Ace and her favorite shot is her ‘power punch’ backhand.
Harvey is a Miniature Golden Doodle. He is 5 years old and loves to play with Pickleballs. Harvey goes everywhere with Mojo and Vicki, as their furry child. He also enjoys chasing squirrels, eating healthy snacks and loves receiving long belly rubs!

Mojo’s 10 Rules For Pickleball

Mojo Playing in a Pickleball Tournament

1) In is better than out. It’s ok to miss 10% of your serves long.
2) Deep is better than short. It’s “no bueno” to have a short serve or service return.
3) When in doubt, drop your 3rd shot.
4) When your opponent’s paddle goes up, yours should goes down.
5) Get low at the kitchen, bend your knees and shuffle those feet!
6) Be patient dinking, move your opponent to setup your teammate.
7) Placement over power…every time.
8) NEVER get mad at hitting a bad shot, always get upset about selecting the wrong shot.
9) Stop trying to win. Play to make your opponent lose.
10) Always smile and be an encouragement to yourself and others!
