About Keven Wong

Keven-wong Certifications & Memberships:
  • PPR certified pickleball instructor
  • CPR/First Aid
  • USA Pickleball member

I was born and raised in Hawaii. I've played many sports throughout my life including tennis for 17 years. I started playing pickleball 5 years ago and like most, fell in love with the sport. One of the things I love about pickleball is that it's a great sport for everyone regardless of age or sports background. When I first started playing, I was surprised to find myself playing against someone in her 80s!

I'm a 5.0 level player and sponsored by Engage Pickleball. I am a PPR certified instructor, and I enjoy working with players of all ages and skill levels-beginner, intermediate, or advanced. I believe that a better understanding of the game of pickleball, along with proper technique, can improve your skill level and overall enjoyment of the game. Pickleball has become a true passion of mine, and I look forward to working with you!
