Meet Steve Deakin

Steve Deakin has been playing pickleball professionally since 2017 (full time since 2019). Prior to pickleball, Steve was an ATP ranked tennis player. His tennis resume includes, 12-time Canadian National Champion, and a member of Canada’s Senior World Team. He decided to try pickleball when shoulder issues began making tennis difficult. He was immediately hooked! In his words, “pickleball is, in a sense, like playing a game of chess.” He loves the fast-paced nature of the game, and explains his playing style as: “well-rounded with a balance of the soft game combined with calculated power-shots.” Most of all, Steve loves pickleball because of the unmatched camaraderie between all ages, body shapes, race, and beliefs.

Steve’s sponsors include Head Pickleball, Pickleball Depot, and Pickleball Canada.

When he’s not on the PPA Tour, Steve teaches pickleball clinics and camps all over Canada and the United States through his Coaching Academy: Steve Deakin Pickleball. He is proud to represent the booming pickleball community in Canada.

Outside of pickleball, Steve enjoys fine dining, CrossFit, poker, gardening, traveling, and cooking.
