Ross Whittaker was born and raised in Canton Ohio. He played competitive tennis and was number one in singles for Walsh University Division 2 in Canton. About three years ago, Ross started playing pickleball recreationally and competed in his first PPA tournament in Cincinnati in 2022. From there he quickly climbed through the rankings in singles and soon was in the top 25 with wins against many top 10 players.

Last year, he moved to the city of Columbus to pursue a career in professional pickleball. He is a touring pro and also serves as director of pickleball at The Pickle Shack, a facility in central Ohio with over 2,000 members.
