Transworld Business Advisors and USA Pickleball Introduce Pickleball to Sunrise Middle School

The game combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.

Transworld Business Advisors and USA Pickleball teamed up to organize a complimentary pickleball clinic for students at Sunrise Middle School in Fort Lauderdale. The duo also generously donated the required equipment to enhance the accessibility of this popular sport on campus. Pickleball is played using a paddle and a plastic ball with holes on a court smaller than a tennis court. The sport’s popularity has been rapidly increasing because it is easy to learn, accessible for all ages, and offers a fun and engaging experience.

Transworld Business Advisors is an international group of business brokerage experts committed to assisting entrepreneurs in purchasing, selling, and expanding their businesses through professional advisory services. In collaboration with USA Pickleball, students were introduced to the sport and supplied with the essential equipment (paddles and balls) for playing pickleball in physical education classes or as part of extracurricular activities.

“This initiative is about more than just playing a sport; it’s about building a community, fostering teamwork, and encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle,” Andy Cagnetta says, CEO of Transworld Business Advisors. “We are committed to supporting programs that positively impact young people’s lives, and we believe pickleball can do just that.”

Before participating in friendly interactive matches, Sunrise Middle School students learned the fundamentals of the game from Cagnetta and Carmen Diaz Mure, USA Pickleball Ambassador for Broward County.

“Bringing communities together to foster the growth of pickleball and its positive benefits relating to physical and mental health is a mutual goal for USA Pickleball and Transworld Business Advisors,” Jose Moreno says, Chief Marketing Officer of USA Pickleball. “Through this event, seventh-grade students participated in a one-hour clinic to promote physical activity, learn pickleball fundamentals and have fun with their peers. We’re happy to engage more youth in the sport and equip them with resources to feel confident picking up a paddle and continuing play for years to come.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
