Tyson McGuffin's Bio

Tyson McGuffin’s skill and personality have made him one of the most well-known players on the PPA Tour. McGuffin’s athleticism, quickness on the court, amazing get-backs, and defensive returns make him a fan favorite to watch. 

Tyson’s strength as a pickleball player can be traced back to his background as a tennis player. Mcguffin played tennis for 2 years at Scottsdale Community College, and then reached the top 1500 on the ATP men’s tour. Tyson then pursued a tennis career, and became the Head Tennis Pro at the Yakima Tennis Club. He coached for six years before he discovered pickleball. Although pickleball did not come naturally to Tyson, he was determined to be successful. Only six months later, Tyson turned pro. 

McGuffin is extremely involved in all areas of pickleball. He runs clinics nationwide, releases instructional videos, teaches, and promotes pickleball as a game that anyone can learn and enjoy.

Outside of pickleball, Tyson can be found spending time with his wife, Megan, and their four children. They enjoy hiking, attending music festivals, and lake days together.
