From Overseas To Florida KeysOur Background

In 1997, after a successful 10-year professional basketball playing career, Eric Dailey Sr. came back to Florida and founded Dailey Training International (DTI), an international basketball training organization with experience providing world-class training to athletes at all skill levels and age groups from amateur to NBA & WNBA. From humble beginnings in Bradenton, Florida to the big city of Hong Kong, DTI has immersed itself culturally on basketball courts all over the world. Its transnational platform has attracted competitive teams and players from Australia, Colombia, Panama, India, Italy, France, Spain, Hong Kong, Brazil, Great Britain, Trinidad & Tobago, Canada, and Japan.

In 2022 on Thanksgiving day, Dailey picked up the game of pickleball by chance. Having a strong background in ping pong, after the first day of playing, he found out that the game was so similar to ping pong and found joy in playing a team sport again after being a former professional basketball player. Having good footwork and soft touch with great hand-eye coordination he quickly became an advanced Pickleball player. Strategies were easy for him to pick up as the game is much similar to ping-pong, in which he has a strong background. Being an international businessman and entrenched in the sports travel, industry, Pickleball International was born.

Having a passion for travel and platforms around the world to produce events, Pickleball International took form.
