What you'll do

We'll schedule for a 1 or 2 hour playing lesson/instruction of pickleball with me. There are permanent outdoor courts in South St. Louis City or we can reserve courts on various Sunday afternoons and permanent pickleball courts in Southwest St. Louis about 12 miles from the city of St. Louis. Depending on your personal experience with playing pickleball, I can cover several things in our session together. If you are new to the game, I can cover everything from the history of the sport, proper warm-up techniques and stretching, paddle fitting and grip recommendations, pickleball rules and game explanation, how tennis and other racket sports differ from pickleball, how to properly play the game and enjoy how quickly you will be able to start playing out points and games. If you are a more experienced player or would like more of an advanced skill development lesson/play format, we can do various drills for shot development. I can help create improvements in your stroke technique. I can help you improve those areas of "weakness" that you never get to work on in your recreational games. I can also provide a "playing lesson" where we work on court positioning, decision making, shot strategy and other various things with playing out points and games for improvement and development. Any of the formats can be done individually or in small groups and will be fun for all.
