Meet Lina Padegimaite

Lina Padegimaite grew up in Kaunas, Lithuania. She moved to the US for a full tennis scholarship for UT Austin in 2011. When attending The University of Texas, Padegemaite achieved a B.S. in Exercise Science at The University of Texas at Austin with highest honors in 2011-2015; Doctor of Physical Therapy at Texas State University 2015-2018. 

Padegimaite is very grateful for the kind and welcoming environment into the sport postpartum. Lina’s most important man in her life is her son, she had him in September 2020. Lina thanks Christina Dorman who welcomed her into her training group in San Marcos, TX. When training Christina would always organize an extra player to rotate to watch my newborn at the time while we trained. Padegemaite is moving to Dreamland, Dripping Springs where she will be able to train with top talent (Vivienne David, DJ Young, Dekel Bar). Padegemaite is always prioritizing off court training, mostly pilates to keep her body strong, mental toughness, and mindset focused on growth and long term plans. 

Since becoming a professional pickleball player in 2022 Lina has collected a number of sponsors including Electrum, Dreamland, ATX Hyperbarics.
