You know the basics of pickleball and how to score, but you may have trouble keeping the ball low; serving and returning deep; getting to the non-volley line safely; making a drop-shot into the non-volley zone; and knowing where to place the ball and when.

THURSDAY’s 3:00-4:30pm or 4:30-6:00pm with Coach Bob Lew

Oh gosh, while I know how to score and play pickleball, I need help keeping the ball in play. I can make 6 out of 10 balls into the court from a slow to medium paced groundstroke. However, I still hit balls into the net or out of the court. I make a lot of unforced errors. My backhand, volley and dink are improving, but I lack confidence in some or all of these strokes. I have trouble hitting moderately to fast paced balls. I do not know what to do when I get to the NVZ line. Does this describe your ability?? Not to worry! Register at the link below to get the skills you need to put the fun back into your game. Balls and nets provided. Limited to 8 students. Classes offered once a week. Select the class day below that works best for you and register.
