Total PPA Titles

Simone Jardim, a native of Brazil, has had a dominant career in pickleball since turning pro in 2015. She has won more PPA titles than any other female player in history and currently holds the #1 ranking in Women’s Doubles and #2 women’s ranking in Mixed Doubles. Although Jardim took a step back from Women’s Singles in 2021, she had held the number one Singles ranking up until that point. Jardim has partnered with all the top players, including #1 in the world Ben Johns and #2 in the world Lucy Kovalova. She is known as the Greatest Of All Time.

A former tennis player, Jardim played for Fresno State University and later taught women’s college tennis. Called the “Queen of Pickleball” by many, Jardim is not only a phenomenal player, but also an ambassador for the sport. She owns Peak Performance Pickleball Academy, where she teaches full-time when she’s not traveling for tournaments. She partners with Nike Sports Camps to run clinics and has mentored a number of pro players. Jardim is also an outspoken advocate for pickleball, pro players, and the evolution of the sport.

Jardim is mother to two children, Alexas (12) and Landon (7) and lives in Naples, FL. She loves working out, hanging out with family and friends, listening to music, and watching movies or shows. She’s also an excellent dancer, thanks to her Brazilian roots and can often be spotted breaking out some of her moves on the pickleball court during practice and changeovers.
