it is said that pickleball is a game that anyone can play whether you are young or old being young definitely gives you an edge you have the superior speed and the stamina but matt wright who is 45 is someone who doesn't lack behind anything it is his experience that he uses in the world of.

Pickleball which makes him a world-class player he is currently sitting at number one in men's doubles and number three at mixed double rankings matt wright pro pickleball bio matt wright is unusual in the pickleball world because he actually played tennis quite seriously throughout his college career at the university of michigan.

He is also unique because he got his introduction to pickleball when he and his friends were seen playing a version of the game they had made up with wooden paddles we started playing a makeshift game we called paddle tennis with a wooden paddle and deflated tennis ball recalled right we then learned about pickleball from a member at our local.

Country club who has a sport court in his backyard and whose house we had played paddle tennis on from time to time we gave pickleball a try and fell in love with it this is probably one of the most unique ways that anyone has come to the sport and matt wright was perhaps better prepared than most to step into the.

Pickleball game due to his remarkable history wright has only been playing professionally for a brief time but he has already made a name for himself he credits his many years of professional and collegiate tennis play as part of the foundation for this success still it might also be that his passion for competition is the biggest driver.

Behind his many achievements in such a short time one reason i believe i have achieved early success is the natural synergy between pickleball and tennis yet the former being comparatively easier to learn and play at a higher level in my opinion the pick up and play nature of pickleball is a critical.

Component in its high retention rate where players have more success at an early stage which in turn leads to more confidence and a greater desire to play if you have wanted to learn more about this often enigmatic but highly skilled pro pickleball player you need to listen in a group of friends and myself started a game what we call paddle tennis some.

Friends of ours saw us playing and said hey have you ever heard of this sport called pickleball people have this conception that pickleball oh it's an old person sport but i don't think they realize how physically demanding it is especially on your lower body with those quick bursts and long grueling points where you're sweating a lot and it's.

Just very challenging matt wright's achievements matt wright has been a pro player since 2016. he has been a four times usa national champion a seven times u.s open champion and a two times tournament of champions gold medalist this is a long list of achievements for someone who has only played for this.

Short time wright plays mixed doubles with lucy kovalova his men's doubles partner might vary depending on the location in the game he is a very flexible player who is equally as skilled when playing alone as he is when playing in a doubles match this is one of the necessary skills for a pro pickleball success but not every.

Player can command these flexible skills and adjust to double's play wright has proven that he can play with numerous different players in a season but he does most of his double playing with kovalova matt's first medals were awarded to him at the 2017 and 2018 pro division majors he took gold both years and cemented his.

Supremacy as a player for good he captured a series of silver medals in doubles competition during these years as well playing with dave weinbach in 2018 he won gold in men's doubles at the 2018 nationals that same year he and lucy kovalova won their mixed doubles game at the nationals and then he and dave weinback.

Both went on to win gold at the us nationals wright has been very optimistic about the change of venue for the usa pa championships because he believes that the sport deserves a truly world-renowned venue for its championship games like so many other pickleball players he has felt that the game needs more attention if it.

Is to continue to grow and gain recognition while wright does not have the time to give back via coaching like some other players he advocates pickleball he often tells people about how he was playing a makeshift version of the game not knowing that he could be playing pickleball itself in the beginning he has made it clear that.

Pickleball is a gratifying game you can learn to play it readily and enjoy it right off unlike tennis which often takes years to learn to play well mr right net worth some sources state that matt wright's net worth for 2022 is 5.4 million dollars his total prize money is 93.

275 dollars this does not come from pickleball alone however when he is not ruling the court he is an attorney full time careers in pickleball can also lead to highly variable income levels for pro players many items like sponsorships product sales and advertising can impact the overall value of their total support for.

Their playing hours most pickleball players make anywhere from fifty thousand to two hundred thousand dollars a year this is a complex calculation to perform since most pickleball playing contracts are not made as public as large signing deals for major football teams and other highly publicized endorsement.

Deals matt wright's preferred gear matt plays at some of his appearances with an evo premier pickleball paddle and he seems to use a variety of different shoes and other gear from his sponsor onyx this is common in pickleball as most gear manufacturers make all of the.

Necessary items for the sport from nets and balls to shoes rackets and clothing matt wright seems to not have publicly stated what he prefers to use for a hand grip shoes or even a racket there are players that like to keep these details private to give them an edge and it is possible that he is very flexible in his choices and lets his.

Sponsor supply him with gear that he uses per game personal life matt wright lives and works as an attorney in wichita kansas he is 44 years old and quite tall for the sport at 6 ft 2 inches sources seem to indicate that he is not married and does not have children although he is a very private player so it might be that these details.

Have just been kept from the public eye there has been some talk about whether he and his partner lucy kovalova are a couple they both live in wichita and train together at home but they are not romantically involved matt also only maintains a twitter account so you will not be able to follow him on facebook or other social media his sponsor onyx.

Pickleball does have an instagram account and a facebook page these are good places to keep in touch with matt's tournaments placings and appearances if you are trying to learn more info or get to see him play his twitter showed him traveling a lot pre-pandemic and this is likely one of the biggest passions that he will return.

To when he has more free time again being a full-time lawyer is a lot of work but there is probably going to be time made to travel to places and not just to play games matt travels frequently for his pickleball event and appears to make the most of being in new places while he is touring.

Matt wright is an excellent player who is relatively new to the game if you need any assurances that people of all ages can enjoy pickleball or that it can be picked up quickly you need only look at the career of matt wright while his vast skill with tennis play is likely the biggest reason for his nearly overnight success as a pickleball player.

This game offers people who might otherwise have suffered from injuries and setbacks to enjoy tennis-like play in a more accessible way matt wright has made a big name for himself in just a few years and he is expected to continue to succeed in the future just as he did in his early years of play.

The current tournament and play schedule for this sport has been delayed somewhat by the pandemic but when things return to normal again it's likely that matt will continue his winning ways when he's not playing pickleball wright has a full-time job as an attorney in wichita kansas wright's partner lucy kovalova also.
