Elly Smith

She is known for making friends wherever she goes and never meets a stranger. She loves hearing about peoples’ journey and bonding over the mutual love of pickleball. So, if you see her around be sure to say hi!When she’s not on the courts, she works as the manager of a growing local coffee shop chain and is known for always serving coffee with a smile on her face. She is also an avid musician and played volleyball for several years before she took up pickleball. “I’m so thrilled to be part of the Ace team. I truly believe that the Ace paddle is one of the best paddles on the market to help any player become more powerful and consistent. I’ve noticed a massive difference in my game since using the Spade paddle. I’m more consistent than I’ve ever been, and I love the feeling of absolute control over the ball. It is sleek, flashy, makes a statement and fits who I am as player down to the motto of “Never Fold”. As I continue to grow and push myself to new heights in my game, I’m so excited to hold in my hand a paddle that reminds me to never give up or be defined by one game, match or tournament. I will ‘Never Fold’.”‍
