Lindsey Newman

Lindsey Newman grew up on Whidbey Island, Washington with 6 siblings (4 sisters and 2 brothers) and now currently resides in Queen Creek, Arizona. She started her pickleball career in the late summer of 2017 at Pickleball Station (in Kent, Washington) after hearing about it from another Selkirk player, Mark Cook.Lindsey and her brother, Riley entered into their first tournament less than a week after picking up a pickleball paddle and won the mixed doubles open bracket! Lindsey and Riley became instant professional players and their careers have completely sky rocketed from there. If Lindsey isn’t out on the pickleball court, she’s probably on another type of court (she referees college basketball). Lindsey plays both singles and doubles in pickleball but much prefers playing doubles with her favorite partner, Riley. Lindsey is also working with her younger sister, Hayley in hopes that they can one day be doubles partners. Some of Lindsey’s favorite pickleball memories include going to Hawaii to play in a tournament and getting DQ blizzards with Riley after a successful day of tournament play. Lindsey plays with the AMPED Epic paddle and loves how big the sweet spot is!

Riley Newman

Riley Newman was born and raised on Whidbey Island, Washington from very supportive parents, Mike and Pam Newman. Riley grew up in the middle of 6 siblings (5 sisters and 1 brother). He grew up and loved playing baseball, soccer, basketball, and tennis. He especially loved basketball and tennis and like his older sister, Lindsey; played tennis at a Division I school in Seattle. Riley was introduced to pickleball in the summer of 2017 by basketball referee and Selkirk player, Mark Cook. Because Riley and Lindsey both played very high-level tennis, picking up a pickleball paddle and learning the strategy wasn’t too difficult. The Newman’s entered into their first 5.0 tournament and won the mixed doubles bracket! Riley has been hooked on pickleball ever since and absolutely loves all of the wonderful people he has meet because of it. Riley lives in Phoenix, Arizona and referee’s college basketball. Riley plays with the Amped Epic paddle and loves the extended handle which allows him to hit his two handed backhand, also the power from the baseline with the touch from the kitchen line. His favorite Pickleball memory came in his first US Open tournament (2018) where Lindsey and him progressed so far in the tourney that they played on center court in the mix open quarterfinals. “The fans were so engaged and felt the awesome energy throughout the whole match.”
