#1 Ben Johns

Ben Johns – Top Pickleball Player in the World

At 20 years old, Benjamin Johns isn’t just the youngest pro in our list, he’s also the top pickleball player in the world. Originally from Maryland, Johns’ family split their time between the east coast and Naples, Florida, the unofficial “Pickleball Capital of the World.” Racquet sports are in the family’s blood, with Johns’ older brother, Collin, a former pro tennis player. Johns picked up a tennis racquet at 8 years old, playing competitively for the next decade. Before his senior year of high school has even started, Johns was feeling burned out on tennis and decided to pick-up pickleball. Not long after, he competed in the U.S. Open in Naples, Florida—the following year, he would go on to win it. Since the 2017 U.S. Open win, Johns has been an unstoppable force in pickleball, winning gold in Men’s Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles at every major tournament. With major tournament wins also comes notoriety, including a first-of-its-kind endorsement contract with Franklin Sports, and a signature paddle.

#2 Tyson McGuffin – Player Profile

Tyson McGuffin

Tyson McGuffin was introduced to pickleball in 2015 by a friend who he played tennis with. At the time, McGuffin played and coached competitive tennis. After a few casual games of pickleball, Tyson entered the Coeur d’Alene Classic and took gold in the Men’s 4.5 Singles division. Selkirk spotted a rising star, and offered Tyson a sponsorship and the chance to enter a new kind of racquet. With a sponsorship in hand, and several more first place finishes, McGuffin played his last day of competitive tennis in June of 2016. Today, he’s one of the most decorated pros in pickleball and widely regarded as the best player on the planet. Tyson lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with his wife and three kids.

    Unlike singles pickleball (click to see tips), where the entire game plan is all up to you, in doubles, it s critical for both of you to be on the same page. The following tips can easily be put into practice at your next match. It just takes some planning and agreement between both players on when and how you are going to move around the court and basic shot selection based on both of your strengths.

    I’m keeping a watch on Jocelyn Jay DeVilliers who’s already at number 5 in men’s singles. A solid NCAA tennis background and his relatively quick rise in Pickleball w/a Vulcan sponsorship. The guy is tall/big/athletic and moves pretty nimbly for a guy of his stature. Monsieur DeVillagers hails from France and has a congenial personality, despite his competitive nature. Quite an interesting type personality that would bode well for our sport. Lots of good guys up there in the top echelons of competitive Pickleball.
