Our Certified Pickleball Instructor

Ken Blazej comes to us from Dixmont, Maine.  He discovered pickleball in 2014 when searching for a new sport after his volleyball group disbanded.  There were only a handful of pickleball players in the Bangor area at that time, and only a rudimentary understanding of the rules and strategies.  He enjoyed improving his, and fellow players skills and abilities and preparing for tournaments.  Ken has competed in numerous local, regional and National tournaments since 2015.  He has won many medals in Singles and with partners in Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles events.  His highest level of achievement was a bronze in singles and a gold in men’s doubles at the 2019 USAPA National Championships held at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, California.  Ken became a Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR) Certified Pickleball Coach in 2020. He enjoys assisting players at all skill levels from beginners to tournament players. “Pickleball is a great sport!  It’s easy to learn, great for your health, fun, social, and inclusive!” kb
