Many folks have inquired about indoor pickleball coaching this winter. I’ve secured indoor space at the Prospect Heights Park District for some semi- private coaching/lessons on Sunday afternoons in Jan/Feb.

Prospect Heights Park District (110 W. Camp McDonald Rd.)

The lessons are Sundays: January 9th-February 6th from 1:30p-2:30p each week.
This 5-week session is limited to 4 people so that we can really focus on improving your game over that time period. Each of the 5 sessions will last 1-hour and focus on different skills each week.  The cost for the 5 weeks is *$100 per person.

Once you’re registered, I’ll send you a confirmation with the address and any other details you’ll need for this session.
*Please NOTE: Since I have such a limited number of spots for this, I will only be able to offer cancellation/refunds for the 5-week session if cancelled prior to December 23rd.

(I’ll also be teaching group classes through the Prospect Heights park district from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm and 3:30p-4:3op for those 5 weeks)

Lots of new people this summer got hooked on Pickleball.  Are you one of them?  Are you confident with your Pickleball skills or could you use a little coaching to tune up your skills to a level that brings you greater happiness and satisfaction?  If you’re new to Pickleball, consider learning the basics from an experienced teacher and player.

For the past 7 years, Pickleball has been the fastest growing sport in the US.  From children to seniors, it’s a sport that’s fun, social and as competitive as you want to make it.  Lots of folks have transitioned to playing Pickleball from Tennis, Badminton, Racquetball, Handball, Ping Pong etc.  However, learning to be an effective Pickleball player doesn’t require you to have played any racquet sports before but prior sports experience can be helpful as it relates to body control and overall balance.  Regardless of age and mobility, players can always learn more and improve their game.

That’s where Pickleball coaching comes in.  If you’re new to Pickleball, Coach Neal will teach you the fundamentals of Pickleball including basic shots, rules and strategies.  For more experienced players, Coach Neal will teach you more advanced shots and strategies to help raise your game to the next competitive level or simply help your game become more consistent to where you can trust that where you intend to hit the ball, it travels there more often than not.  This leads to greater overall pleasure and satisfaction with your Pickleball play.
