Lots of new people this summer and fall 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.  Either way, Pickleball coaching is right for you.

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.
