Individual or small group. I’m very flexible on lesson times and locations. I will customize lesson content to meet your specific interests. Contact me with questions and to discuss options. Click on the program name for full description.
My Four Lesson Program has two options: one for beginners and one for those with a prior beginner lesson or some playing experience. The Beginner lessons teach all the fundamental elements of the sport and the shots and set up of the game. In the Improving lessons we spend time playing a game and then stopping and critiquing each point in order to learn appropriate court position and shot selection. We also incorporate skill drills to focus on areas for improvement.
My One Lesson Program offers a variety of options from an Introduction to Pickleball, to Skill Improvement drills on any of the basic shots, to critiquing your game play with recommendations for improving Shot Selection and Court Positioning.
