Founded in beautiful Virginia Beach, we are more than just a sports retail company – we are a community driven by a shared love for athleticism, fueled by passion, and dedicated to delivering an exceptional experience to every customer.

My name is Franz Busche, and my journey with pickleball began in 2019 during my time at Virginia Tech. This fast-paced, exhilarating sport captured my heart and ignited a fire within me. Inspired by my playful and spirited husky, Sasha, the name 'Top Dog Athletics' was born, symbolizing our drive to reach new heights and become the leaders in the industry.
