Tony Wells and Larissa Hass are transplanted Canadians now making their home in Goodyear, Arizona.
Tony is a retired firefighter and former volleyball player and coach, winner of 9 National Volleyball Championships. He found a new passion in Pickleball shortly after moving to Arizona.
Larissa is the Arizona Business Development Manager for Princess Cruises. Formerly she hosted tours in Eastern Canada, the Canadian Rockies, Spain, and Costa Rica. In her pre-Pickleball days she was a personal trainer and trained for triathlons.
In early 2017, Tony was contacted by a volleyball player he had coached back in Canada. He knew that Tony had recently discovered pickleball and had news about a project his parents were involved with in Los Barriles, Mexico. That project is Tres Palapas Baja Pickleball Resort, and when Tony visited the construction in May and met the wonderful Tres Palapas team he was immediately sold. He knew had to bring pickleball players down to this amazing place, located just an hour north of the San Jose Del Cabo airport. Both Tony and Larissa have experience with group tours and knew this would be a great project.
