It gives me great pleasure to inform you that Rachel Stuhlmann, who OutKick had already ranked as the world’s top tennis influencer, has now been named the world’s top pickleball influencer following an unprecedented poll among OutKick Culture Department members.

Stuhlmann is the first influencer in OutKick history to hold the No. 1 ranking in two sports. 

Stuhlmann wore her typical two-piece tennis costume in a dramatic Instagram photo that was shared on Monday afternoon. However, upon closer inspection, there was a dramatic content pivot linked with this upload: Rachel was holding a pickleball racquet and a PICKLEBALL instead of a tennis ball.

“Yeah, I enjoy playing pickleball. “I adore the way that sports unite communities in a constructive, healthful, and social manner,” Rachel said to her supporters on Monday. “It’s not ‘taking over tennis,’ sorry. I think that’s a really dramatic interpretation. Both sports have space to flourish. And the sound is OK with me.”

These quotations echoed a lot of the feelings that the top player in the world expressed to OutKick in 2023 when pickleball was facing legal trouble due to numerous lawsuits arising from noise concerns related to the game. In September, things became so bad that a woman trying to sell her $36 million pickleball courthouse urged the park to close its court.

Stuhlmann claims that she now identifies as a “racquet sports girl.”

“Tennis, pickleball, pedal [a Mexican racket sport], platform tennis, squash, ping pong- the truth is, I love them all,” she stated.

Stuhlmann appeared to be at a turning point in his career in 2023. Although pickleball has been receiving a lot of investment money, she was the top tennis influencer in the world. Stuhlmann is an entrepreneur. She is familiar with the numbers. She is aware of the companies trying to recruit her into the pickleball community.

It appeared to be burdening her.

Everything changed today.

She is now OutKick’s first-ever dual-sport influencer. This is significant.
