9-Time National Champion
Daniel is a 9-time national champion and professional pickleball player. After playing collegiate tennis at Azusa Pacific University and living in Kenya, he started pickleball in 2014 when his father introduced him to the sport, saying “this is your only chance to become a national champion”. After working as a travel guide in Japan, Pickleball Trips was born out of a desire to take pickleball players to world-class destinations. He started pickleball in Japan and Kenya, as well as helping launch in China. He has taught in over 15 countries and is currently working on developing a certification program for the International Federation of Pickleball. Daniel lives in Japan, where he owns Active Travel Japan, an outdoor travel business and enjoys snowboarding and hiking in Japan’s many mountains.
Randy Coleman accidentally discovered pickleball during a family visit to Lubbock, TX in late 2015. After playing recreationally for a couple of years, he entered his first pickleball tournament in Houston where he won three gold medals. Randy officially turned pro in January of 2018 upon signing with Selkirk Sport, who he has been with ever since, while also serving as a brand ambassador for companies such as Babolat and Jigsaw Health. His passion for meeting new people through pickleball, competing, and helping grow the sport on a global scale led him to sell his house and go full time on-the-road. Since that time, Randy has medaled in too many tournaments to count as well as having the opportunity to teach and promote the sport in countries such as Japan, Ireland, and China as an International Federation of Pickleball International Ambassador. In 2020 and beyond, Randy looks forward to continuing to travel with Pickleball Trips as a guest instructor, commentating on professional pickleball matches, and growing his website PickleballVoyager.com.
