Brent Fields, Director
Born and raised in the heart of Wichita, my love for tennis ignited at the tender age of 5. From local tournaments to national competitions, I've honed my skills and emerged victorious, clinching the 6A state doubles title alongside my talented brother.
After playing collegiate tennis at Wichita State University, I found my true calling as a tennis instructor. For over a decade, I've been sharing my passion with students of all ages and skill levels - from enthusiastic beginners to aspiring college and professional players.
My journey has taken me across borders as a coach at the prestigious US Open. Additionally, I've proudly owned and operated a top-notch facility for 15 years, providing an exceptional training environment for athletes.
Beyond the court, I cherish family time with my two amazing children aged 21 and 15. When not swinging a racket or coaching, you'll find me indulging in various hobbies like golfing, hunting, fishing, car racing, bowling - always seeking new adventures. And above all else, attending church keeps me grounded.
Join me on this incredible journey as we continue to embrace the joy of tennis and live life to its fullest!

Noi Sourinthone, Pickleball Manager
Hello! My name is Noi Sourinthone, I am the new Pickleball Instructor at Riverside Tennis Center! I’ve recently moved to Wichita from Nashville, TN, where I grew the sport of pickleball tremendously by providing my expertise and time with the community. I am so excited and grateful to bring what I have learned about the sport of pickleball to Wichita!
My love for pickleball started from table tennis when I was seven years old. My brother introduced me to the sport and within a year I became the #1 player for boys under 10 years old in the nation. We played in many Junior Olympics and the US OPEN for table tennis. I've trained with the men's and women's national coach and competed against players on the US national team. Pickleball was introduced to me by an avid player that was 85 years young! I fell in love with it instantly! I played 5-6 times a week, 3-5 hours a day.
One of my goals in pickleball was to become a sponsored player and in March 2020, I was signed by ENGAGE PICKLEBALL. I am now part owner of a pickleball company, Precise Power. We manufacture and distribute paddles, plus men's and women's apparel. I have won multiple tournaments from 4.0-5.0 events. My partner and I won our division, receiving the golden ticket to go to nationals in 2021.
I am excited to take on the challenge of taking a city which already has a great pickleball community and enhance the talent and introduce pickleball to new players continuing to grow the sport in the Midwest! My first project at Riverside Tennis Center is to start new leagues for pickleball players!
