Hello. I’m Angela Weld from Bedford, Nova Scotia.
I’ve played many sports over the years and coached and refereed basketball since high school. Pickleball is now my Bread n Butter. I am the Membership Chair on the Pickleball Nova Scotia Board, and I love to see our membership numbers rise as our sport is becoming so popular.
I play in tournaments and also love to play pickleball with my family. I’ve introduced my husband and children to pickleball as well as my 80 year old parents. My old paddles go to good use as I get more and more family hooked. I’ll be hanging onto my new MATRIX for a while though, I LOVE IT!!!
I plan on playing as many tournaments as possible and plan on becoming a certified referee. It seems like a great way to travel and meet people including my new Manta teammates.

I am a high school student from Nova Scotia and I have been playing pickleball for 2 years. I was introduced to pickleball when I went to a community open gym night at my school where there was a group playing this amazing sport. Someone there offered to teach me how to play and since then I have loved this sport! I have helped plan and organize tournaments in my community, as well as having participated in many local tournaments and NS Provincials in 2018 and 2019. I am excited to be on the Manta Pro Team and hope to achieve my goal of growing the sport throughout youthful players. I hope to play on a National level and, one day, be the top rated player in Nova Scotia.

I first started pickleball when I was about 8 I instantly fell in love with the sport and had to keep playing. In my first national tournament at age 9 my friend samual and I were registered in the junior category and ended up in 3rd place. Having such a fun tournament with such good results really started my passion for this amazing sport. I have been supported through this adventure by so many people I can’t thank them all. I feel like I definetly owe a huge thanks to Gene Latray for always supporting me in every tournament I do he always tries his best to be there. I also owe a huge thanks to the Manta Pro Team. Elya Postma and Charles Neufeldt, they have been sponsoring me for almost 3 years now and they have supplied me with everything my pickleball career has ever needed. From paddles and balls to shoes and shirts. Im super proud of how far I have come in this sport and as I continue to play it my love for the sport only grows. I will keep reaching for my goals and will continue to climb the ladder to the top of the game.

I have been playing Pickleball for 5 years now and loving it more and more each day. My background is squash and tennis but I’m all Pickleball now. I enjoy travelling with my wife Karen and friends to the Caribbean and playing Pickleball everywhere in the Caribbean sun. My wife and I play Pickleball about 6 times a week and I enjoy teaching beginners this fantastic game. I have been using Manta Pickleball paddles for a couple of years and recommend them to all. See you all on the courts, over the net or around the post.
