The Pickleball Guru

Like any 18-year-old kid working a job, Prem Carnot couldn't wait to clock out for the day. But instead of calling up his friends after his workday, he had something else in mind. After his shift at Parisian hotel tucked in the shadow of Notre-Dame Cathedral, Prem would grab his gym bag, jog across the Seine, and spend the next five hours practicing backhands and forehands. At that time, his game of choice was ping-pong. The dedication paid off, landing him a spot in the French National Table Tennis Championships.

It wasn't until he moved to Washington state, had a run in with a shrink ray, and met an enthusiastic pickleball player that he redirected his ping-pong prowess into the new sport, travelling the country to compete in tournaments. Today, Prem takes players under his wing to teach them the ins and outs of the sport. Though a master pickleball blaster in his own right, he approaches each lesson with humility, discovering each new student's innate playing style and going from there. The results have been overwhelmingly positive, as former students sing Prem's praises.
