Some Recent Student Comments:

The 4-week Thursday night 7-8 PM pickleball class ended last night, and I just wanted to thank you for having Neal as the instructor.  He is an excellent teacher, very patient with the students, and set up the class for a mix of really helpful drills as well as games. I’m so glad BPD hired him to teach this class.”

“Thank you for being a great pickleball coach.  My friends that I typically play with (and some others that I occasionally play with) mentioned that my game has improved dramatically in the past 5 weeks since I started lessons with you.”

“I was referred to you for pickleball lessons and coaching by several people at the Palatine Picklers group.  They all said that you are one of the best coaches and teachers in the northwest suburbs and now I can say I totally agree!”


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?

For the past 8 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.  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.
