Paola Michelle Longoria López (born July 20, 1989) is a Mexican racquetball player. She's the two time reigning International Racquetball Federation World Champion in both Women's Singles and Doubles, the first player to hold both titles simultaneously.

Longoria is also the #1 player on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) tour, and was the first Mexican woman to attain the #1 pro ranking, doing so at the end of the 2008-09 season. She repeated the feat at the end of 2009-2010 season, and has been #1 for the last three seasons. Longoria's style is characterized by a semi-western grip of the racquet, which is unusual for racquetball; Longoria is the only pro player using this grip style.
