You heard it here first, folks: Niko & Christie Fronimos are, for all intents & purposes, the Homecoming Queen & King of Pickleball, for reasons you’ll be hearing about as they both emerge not only on the pickleball semi-pro scene but beyond it, as the focus of several documentaries streaming on a channel near you in the not-so-distant future.

Two years ago, the dynamic duo launched Ultimate Greece Pickleball, a luxury vacation package program providing all the first-class amenities of a 5-star resort in Greece’s most historic destinations – Athens, Crete and Santorini.

As part of the company’s May 2023 excursion, the Fronimos launched “The Agape Pickleball Project,” a non-profit not only dedicated to bringing pickleball to Greece, but also serving the mission of supporting Special Olympians in this specially designed pickleball clinic and demonstration supporting Special Needs athletes in Greece.  At that time, approximately 40 Americans participating in the tour, including 5-time world Pickleball Champion Kyle Yates, partnered with special needs athletes on pickleball courts at the historic Athens Lawn & Tennis Club located in the historic Agora of the Temple of Zeus overlooking the Parthenon.  In May 2024, Agape will host its second annual sojourn serving-up pickleball to Special Olympians – to reserve your spot on this extraordinary adventure click here.
