Professional pickleball player KaSandra Gehrke, 30 years old, began playing pickleball five years ago. At the time, she was an unfit PE teacher who had never played a racquet sport. Today she is 60 pounds lighter and is the #10 female mixed doubles player in the world, according to Pickleball Global. She addresses a number of interesting topics in this Pickleball Fire podcast:
- why she lost almost all her games for many months after reaching the 4.5 level;
- how she lost so much weight; and
- how much she currently earns as a pickleball pro relative to what she used to earn as a PE teacher.
It is well worth a listen.
