 Kevin Smith
A Passionate Pickleball Enthusiast and Ambassador

In the vibrant world of pickleball, where passion meets skill, Kevin Smith stands as a true ambassador for the sport. He took over Premier Pickleball in May of 2022 from Barbara Norton and Patty Corn.


Kevin, a retired police officer with an unwavering passion for sports, brought with him a wealth of experience as the owner of the largest “Over 35” adult baseball league in New Jersey, Play at The Plate New Jersey. Alongside his baseball endeavors, Kevin is a certified PPR Pickleball Instructor, a testament to his dedication to the game.

Kevin Smith lives in Waldwick, NJ with his wife Mary. Kevin and Mary's shared pickleball journey is nothing short of remarkable. Together, they have clinched over 75 medals during their 7-year adventure in the sport.


 Their tenacity and skill have propelled them to compete in tournaments across the country, earning accolades such as the prestigious Gold Medal at the US Open in Naples, Florida, and numerous other victories, including a recent Gold at the NY Open and US Open in 2023. What sets them apart is their exceptional partnership on the court – one of the rare husband and wife teams that not only competes together but also harmoniously shares a life beyond the game.

Under Kevin and Mary's leadership, Premier Pickleball has flourished. With a dedicated staff comprising 15 PPR and IPTPA certified instructors, Premier Pickleball continues to thrive, fostering a community of passionate players who share the love for the game. 


The journey to introduce new players to pickleball has expanded to multiple locations, offering instruction and open play hours. The newest partnership with Prestige Pickleball will continue to bring pickleball excellence, inviting players of all levels to join a community bound by their shared love for the game.
