Join over 1,300 players in the Upstate area playing Pickleball
Perhaps your friends play Pickleball. Maybe you’re a tennis or racquetball player looking for a new challenge. If you have a fun-loving attitude and an ounce of athletic ability, then Pickleball is the sport you need to start playing.
In the LEVEL ONE 2-hour Beginner Clinic, you’ll learn how to effectively hit the ball, maintain a rally, keep score, the rules and basic game play. At the end of this clinic, players will have the foundational knowledge and skills to start playing Pickleball.
We are now offering a LEVEL TWO Beginner Clinic. This is for players who have taken the first clinic and want to build upon their foundational game. We’ll take you through a variety of drills to improve all the shots you need to become a skillful player. We’ll also improve your court positioning and teach you how to outsmart your opponents.
In our capstone LEVEL THREE Beginner Clinic, you’ll gain a greater ability to force your opponents to make a mistake by learning how to hit un-attackable shots and by developing a third shot drop. You’ll also improve your forehand and backhand groundstrokes. Plus, we will teach you advanced doubles play strategies while giving you constructive in-game coaching advice.
Intermediate Clinics are also available. The PLAY WITH COACHING session gives you in-game coaching on how to minimize mistakes to maximize your ability to win points. The SKILLS & DRILLS session is a series of specific drills designed to make you a smarter, more skillful, and sought-after doubles partner.
Paddles and balls will be provided and participation is capped at 12 players for each clinic so that everyone will receive individualized coaching time. $40 per person. (Both the Play with Coaching and Skills & Drills sessions are $45 per player.)
