Meet Matt Wright

Matt Wright is the #2 ranked pro player in pickleball, both in Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles. He plays with Lucy Kovalova as his set partner in Mixed Doubles and has a variety of partners in Men’s Doubles. Matt is a veteran of the sport and has enjoyed watching pickleball grow and adapt to new players and styles, yet is reluctant to give the competition a chance to usurp his spot at the top.

When he’s not playing pickleball, Wright has a full-time job as an attorney in Wichita, Kansas. Wright’s partner, Lucy Kovalova, also resides in Wichita, which means they are able to keep their mixed doubles game up to speed even while not on tour. Wright enjoys college and professional sports, concerts, road trips, and reading.
