Pickleball has gone from the country club to one of the fast-growing sports in the world and now another athletic icon has hitched himself to the bandwagon.

Tom Brady announced overnight that he will become a Major League Pickleball owner.

"Look, I've been trying to find a way to extend my professional sports career beyond my 40s, even into my 50s, 60s, 70s, as long as I can right?" Brady said in the selfie video post on Instagram. "And I think I got the answer -- pickleball."

He continued, "I'm officially joining the MLP family."

"You know how I do with competition, right? I love that's it's become such a popular neighborhood sport. It's a great way to get out of the house, but I'm coming to win. I'm coming to the dominate the sport," Brady, 45, said.
