Lil Wayne is the latest celeb to dive head first into Major League Pickleball ... officially joining the Texas Ranchers' ownership group on Tuesday.

The Ranchers -- one of eight Major League Pickleball teams in the country -- announced the move minutes ago ... revealing Weezy will be teaming up with celebs and athletes like Micah Parsons, Zach Bryan, Myles Garrett, C.J. Stroud and more to help turn the squad into an MLP powerhouse.

According to the Texas franchise, Wayne will be coming on as a strategic advisor who will be tasked with drawing fans to the team ... as well as developing apparel collaborations. Wayne will also be helping to build pickleball courts in underprivileged areas.

"We're so excited to have Lil Wayne on board," Texas Ranchers CEO Evan Floersch said in a statement.

"From the get-go, we set out to build a team that, at its core, was centered in pop culture to support our mission of becoming one of the most recognized brands in American sports."

Floersch added, "Having Wayne's guidance, along with the rest of this incredible ownership group, emphasizes our stance on redefining sports ownership and being a positive force for good in our local pickleball community and beyond."

Lil Wayne was ecstatic to be jumping on board ... saying in a statement of his own, "Pickleball is the moment."

"I've enjoyed watching and couldn't pass up the opportunity to join this team of owners," the 41-year-old said.

Of course, Wayne will have a whole hell of a lot of competition going forward in the MLP ... considering guys like Tom Brady, LeBron James, Drew Brees, Naomi Osaka and Michael Phelps and so many more have already signed on with other teams.
