Hi, and Welcome to Pickleball5000

Hi! My name is Anthony Maritato but please call me “Tony”. I have been a licensed physical therapist since 2006. Before that, I lived and worked as a strength coach and personal trainer in Sarasota, FL.

Believe it or not, I have never played the sport of pickleball, but after more than a decade of helping injured pickleball athletes return to the court, I have decided to start my pickleball journey.

If you would like to learn more about pickleball, injury prevention, and performance, please use the search feature on this website. If you would like to learn more about me and my pickleball journey please visit the About page.
