Riley Newman has been playing pickleball since 2017 and instructing for 3 years. Having a background as a D1 tennis player, the skills and strategies of pickleball came to him naturally. In his first 5.0 tournament, playing mixed doubles with his sister Lindsey, Riley took the gold! Since then, he steadily rose to the top of the leaderboard and is currently ranked in the top three in the world for Men’s and Mixed Doubles. Riley is in his first year representing GAMMA Pickleball and can be seen playing with his Signature Paddle, the Riley Newman 206. He is confident playing a two-handed backhand, a skill he is more than excited to share with his campers.
In his free time Riley enjoys spending time with his family, working out, and attending professional sports tournaments.
