About us

I'm Gary Zins. My journey with pickleball began in mid 2022 when my new love of pickleball convinced me to pivot my travel agency almost entirely towards pickleball destinations. Since then, I have personally experienced 15+ all-inclusive resorts, sailed on 4 different cruiselines, 1 river cruiseline, and 15 different countries--all with pickleball--and have played in three international tournaments, while developing many pickleball connections along the way. I am a certified PPR pickleball coach, avid pickleball player, and traveler. Together with my partners, my goal is to discover the best pickleball destinations for your group.

What Our Clients Say

"Gary at Pickleball Travel did a great job of planning our trip to Ochos Sandals Resort in Jamaica. In the months leading up to our group's trip, he sent several updates with suggestions. One of the most valuable was to suggest we pay a little extra before the trip for a service in the airport which saved us 2-3 hrs standing in a very long line, longer than I've ever seen at Hartsfield ATL! Gary also got on a couple issues involving the pickleball courts that weren't up to standard our 1st morning. The staff fixed it on the 2nd day and they even gave us a special private beach party to make up for their mistakes."

"This was my 1st time to visit a Sandals resort and everything was great. Gary helped our group to plan our pickleball trip. He provided helpful information and checked on us if everything was going well. He will do a great job to help you plan your upcoming trip."
