Professional Pickleball Player, PPA Tour & MLP's Florida Smash
An incredibly talented player who leaves her heart out on the court, Jessie Irvine has cruised her way to the top of women’s pickleball. She is ranked in the Top 5 in pro pickleball and is known for her on-court passion, athleticism, and fierce “come on’s” during crucial points.
Irvine comes to the sport of pickleball from a successful tennis career and is originally from Cary, North Carolina. She started playing tennis at the age of 10 and was a top 10 Junior Tennis Player, former WTA Pro Tennis Player, and Top Women POP Tennis Player. Irvine moved to Southern California to focus on coaching juniors in tennis, which she has been doing now for almost 10 years. During her time in California, she studied at UCLA and did some TV work with Tennis Channel, including roles on “Court Report” and “One-Minute Clinic.”
Outside of playing pickleball, Jessie enjoys hanging out with friends, coaching, watching movies, going out for dinner, working out/training, listening to music, dancing, golf, and laughing and having a good time!
