About 'Hurricane' Tyra Black

‘Hurricane’ Tyra Black got her nickname from her parents for her tenacious style of play on the tennis court, and it translated perfectly on the pickleball tour. Joining the pro circuit in 2023 at just 22 years old with only a few years of experience, Tyra made several big splashes right out of the gate. Most notably, knocking off Anna Leigh Waters at the 2023 Takeya Showcase and offering consistent performances on the PPA and MLP tours. With the goal of being the ‘best she can possibly be, day by day,’ look for Hurricane Tyra Black to compete for the podium several more times throughout her pickleball career. Watch episode #31 of the Zero Zero Start podcast and listen to Hurricane Tyra Black as she talks about what it was like knocking off the top player in the world, why she doesn't set goals for the future, and so much more!

Tyra’s Pickleball Paddle of Choice 

Tyra and PIKKL teamed up and haven’t looked back since. Helping design her signature paddle, Tyra and PIKKL created two options, a 14mm and 16mm to meet any player’s needs. Together, they created a game-changer, designed for ultimate performance on the court. Experience unparalleled hand speed with its elongated handle and modified standard pickleball paddle face, resulting in a lower swing weight that ensures lightning-fast reactions. Crafted with a strategically placed sweet spot near the paddle face’s center, this paddle enhances power and spin with every stroke, instilling confidence in your gameplay. It's engineered for dominance in every rally, allowing you to seize control of the game effortlessly.
