It appears Tom Brady will remain involved in the world of sports following the end of his football career.
That's not a shock. But the sport he's investing in might come as a surprise.
Brady has bought into an ownership group for a Major League Pickleball team, according to a report from Front Office Sports. The ownership group also includes former professional tennis player Kim Clijsters. The team will begin play during the 2023 season.
Brady is not the only high-profile athlete jumping on board with the sport that has boomed in popularity in recent years. NBA stars Lebron James, Draymond Green and Kevin Love recently teamed up to buy another expansion team.
Major League Pickleball is planning to expand from 12 teams to 16 next season and to hand out a record $2 million in prize money. MLP founder Steve Kuhn has apparently set a goal to have 40 million people playing pickleball by 2030.
Getting Brady on board certainly can't hurt.
