Jack Sock will play alongside other tennis legends in the Pickleball Slam 2.

John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, and Maria Sharapova will headline the event.

Selkirk Sport athlete Jack Sock is set to participate in the much-anticipated Pickleball Slam 2, an event that pits tennis icons against each other as they take on the challenge of pickleball. 

This exciting event, scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 4, will be broadcast live on ESPN, following the NFL Pro Bowl and an NBA regular season game. 

The Pickleball Slam 2, to be held at Hard Rock Live in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, is a gathering of tennis legends. 

John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, and Maria Sharapova — with a staggering 42 tennis grand slams between them — are set to face off for a prize purse of $1 million. The four are joined by Jack Sock and James Blake, two former tennis players turned pickleballers. 

McEnroe and Blake will face off against Agassi and Sock in men’s doubles while Sharapova and Blake will play Graf and Sock before the main event. Going for the $1 million prize purse, McEnroe and Sharapova will face off against spouses Agassi and Graf.

The inaugural Pickleball Slam, held in April 2023, featured McEnroe, Agassi, Andy Roddick, and Michael Chang. With Agassi and Roddick clinching the gold, the slam became the highest-rated competition in pickleball history. 

In the days leading up to the main event, the Amateur Slam 2 will be held from February 2-3 at 1665 Lenox Avenue in Miami Beach. This event offers amateur teams a chance to compete for a $25,000 prize and the unique opportunity to play against the four tennis legends. 

The Pickleball Slam 2 is more than just a series of matches, it's a showcase of legendary talents in a new arena. For fans of tennis and pickleball, the Pickleball Slam 2 is a not-to-be-missed spectacle that promises to deliver excitement and fun.
