2022 Board Member, Mandy Newell


Mandy grew up around the paddle courts in Rochester, New York. She played ice hockey in high school and Division 1 field hockey at UCONN. She continues to be competitive with paddle and has been known to sub on the adult "D" league hockey teams in town. She enjoys skiing and drives a really cool minivan to bus around her three kids.

Mandy worked in the printing business for 12 years before taking over as League Commissioner for the Rochester Paddle League, and running the platform tennis program at Shadow Lake Golf & Racquet Club. She started the ROCPaddle clothing brand, and you may have seen her do "the worm" on the dance floor at a few tournaments over the past years.

Mandy lives in Penfield with her husband, John, and their children, Avery, Reese and Jordan. In the off-season, she can be found on Lake Ontario racing the family sailboats (Lighting & Melges 15) and spending time at Keuka Lake and Old Forge in the Adirondacks. Her father, Fritz Odenbach, is a former board member and is a member of the Platform Tennis Hall of Fame.
