Never played Pickleball before? Have you played but need help with the rules or sound techniques? This fun class will introduce you to the fundamentals of the game that is the fastest growing sport in America. In our beginning Pickleball clinics, you will learn both proper technique for all basic shots (forehand, backhand, serve, volley & dink) and how to play / score a game from start to finish.

Intermediate Pickleball - Tuesdays 6:30 - 7:30 pm & Thursdays 10:30 – 11:30 am
Have you had a taste of Pickleball and can't get enough? This class is for the player that has a basic understanding of rules and techniques but would like to work on honing their skills and learning strategies of the game. We will focus on perfecting your shots and work on strategies such as effective placement, how to work offensively and defensively when at the No Volley Zone, when to use power vs. placement, the 3rd shot drop, consistency, taking the ball early, various serve techniques, communicating with your partner and so on.
*We suggest attending our Beginner Class 4-6 times before attending the Intermediate Class.

If you are already playing competitively, but looking to take your game to the next level, this is the class for you! Our instructors will help correct and refine techniques, ensuring any bad habits are eliminated. Students will also work on their shot production, learning to control depth, accuracy, and how to hit with more spin and pace. Through a variety of drills, foundations of court positioning and tactics will be covered.

3.5+ - Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:30 pm
This is our most advanced group clinic designed for players that are already having some competitive success or even considering participating in tournament play.
