Someone broke into my garage and ransack my car last night. They found the key to my dad’s car, a Gold 2013 Nissan Altima SV Lic 7BWY923 and took my Pickleball backpack. Please be on the look out for the following items:
- 1 Red Paddletek Power Play Pro
- 1 Engage Encore (mostly white w/ purple logo) w/ lead tape
I would like to thank Engage Pickleball for replacing one of my stolen paddles.
