Hurricane Tyra Black

Hurricane Tyra Black came on the pickleball scene in March of 2023 after playing tennis since she was a child.  A close friend got her out on the pickleball court and would think about playing pickleball while she was still playing tennis!  She knew then that she needed to make a permanent switch.  

Tyra played for the Miami Pickleball Club in the second MLP season and is a MLP Premiere contracted player.  In her short time in pickleball she has:
– Beat the world #1 player in singles at PPA Takeya Showcase 2023
– Gold medal in singles at Delray Beach Open 2023
– Gold medal in doubles at Delray Beach Open 2023
