Fun Fact: Jessie always does her hair in her recognizable double bun before matches. 

Jessie Irvine is a professional pickleball player from Cary, North Carolina. A former semi-pro tennis player, Jessie gave up her professional tennis career because of a unique shoulder injury that prevented her from hitting overheads without pain. She began her charge to the top of the pickleball world in 2018, turned pro in early 2019, and hasn’t looked back since. Quickly becoming one of the world’s best, Jessie’s fierce competitiveness landed her atop professional podiums across the country. Jessie’s style is described as one of the smoothest in the world, as she tracks down balls and resets with ease. One of the most respected players in all of pickleball, you can find Jessie all over the PPA Tour and Major League Pickleball swinging her favorite Engage pickleball paddle.
