Keith Ferger

Pickleball Pro & Manager

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.
