Jake Kusmider - Head Pickleball Pro

Jake started playing tennis at 4 years old and played through juniors up to the college level. He played on the men’s tennis team at College of Charleston during the 2016-2017 season and then started teaching tennis full time at the Jack Adams Tennis Center in the fall of 2017.  His pickleball career started in 2019 when he entered his first doubles tournament in Camden. Subsequently he started pro singles in 2020 at the APP Hilton Head Open placing 4th. His first top 10 singles win was in Tampa at the 2021 PPA Grand Slam. He achieved a career high ranking of 19 after a top 8 showing at the 2021 APP Delray Beach Open. Jake finished that year ranked 10th for points accumulated on the year. Other highlights include a pro medal at the APP World Pickleball open followed by another pro medal at the APP Delray Beach Open.

Keith Ferger - Manager & Pickleball Pro

From the age of 5, Keith grew up playing multiple sports including soccer, baseball, basketball, football, and golf.  After high school, he quickly picked up the coaching aspect of sports while still playing competitively himself.  Keith has 20+ years of training youth and college athletes in multiple sports.  In 2014, he picked up pickleball and was instantly hooked.  Keith entered his first tournament in 2014 winning silver in the 4.5 division and has since racked up many medal stand appearances in the open/pro division.  Keith quickly moved into teaching and found just as much joy in helping others as playing himself.  For Keith, seeing students that he has coached be successful and enjoy playing the game is what it's all about!  Keith completed his IPTPA Certification in 2020 and has been a full-time coach for the past 4 years.  Prior to The Pickle Bar, Keith started the pickleball program at the Roy Barth Tennis Center at Kiawah Island and was the head pro there until 2023.  Keith is now a Manager with The Pickle Bar helping on the restaurant and bar side of the business as well as with the pickleball programming where we look to create the best pickleball program in South Carolina.
