Meet Patrick Smith

Ranked Top 10 in the World, Patrick Smith is a force to be reckoned with in both the Mixed Doubles and Men’s Doubles divisions. A passionate and vocal competitor on-court and a positive and kind personality off-court, Smith has inspired a variety of nicknames for himself such as “the Winter Soldier” and is a fan favorite.

Smith was first introduced to professional pickleball by Jocelyn Devilliers, quickly became hooked on the sport, and played his first-ever tournament in 2019. Although traveling around the country constantly has been an adjustment, Smith has enjoyed returning to high-level competition after deciding to retire as a professional tennis player around ten years ago.

Smith grew up in Munich, Germany where he played tennis since he was a small child under the tutelage of his father. After a 1 year absence from tennis, he decided to accept a full scholarship for D1 tennis at the University of Missouri in Kansas City. There, Smith received multiple awards including Men’s Conference Player of the Year in 2010. He was also very focused on his academics and graduated with majors in Pre-Med, German, and Liberal Arts and a minor in Business. Following this, Smith enrolled in graduate studies and completed a master’s degree in Business Administration with a double emphasis in both Finance and Entrepreneurship. After completing his studies, Smith made the decision to stay permanently in the U.S. rather than return to his home in Germany.

When Smith isn’t traveling and playing pickleball, he is the CEO of Hair by Robotics, a company that specializes in hair transplants using a surgical robot, as well as other hair loss solutions. Smith enjoys staying active and fit by hitting the gym, hiking, traveling, and attending Crossfit classes. He currently resides in Wichita, KS with his dog Kaya.
