Karen Strine had an epiphany in her early twenties — she loved racquet sport and she played racquetball and tennis for a combined 25 years. She fell in love with pickleball seven years ago, after the death of a close friend. She loves the sport and enjoys its social aspect, too.

Karen earned a BA in History and worked in geriatric nursing, volunteering with a hospice and caring for her aged parents. She also earned a health coach certification and has taught the American Red Cross
