Age: 35

From: Moscow and currently resides in Seattle, WA. 

Before becoming a National Champion and multiple US Open medalist, Irina played tennis at Texas Tech as their top player in both singles and doubles.  Almost immediately after being introduced to Pickleball, Irina quickly became a competitive and accomplished Pro.  She loves teaching Pickleball because she feels it is a “great battleground for different styles of play and people of all skill levels can really enjoy themselves playing the sport.”  When she’s not teaching or traveling to and winning medals in tournaments, Irina also finds time for snowboarding and waterskiing.

    I also winter for 6 months in Tucson and would love to have her visit or gives some lesson at our club in Oro Valley, we currently have about 400 member in our club, not all active though. Great to watch your play, we saw your win at the national in Indian Wells, what a great venue, nice gardens and eats, continue your success

    I live in Tucson and would like to contact Irina about pickleball lessons for our club. She was an instructor at Bobby Riggs Clinic in July which two of us attended and she was terrific. I understand that she now resides in Tucson and would like for her to contact me.

    Irina has such a great personality and is quite the athlete. She is a pleasure to watch on the court and her sense of humor makes her very entertaining.
