Upcoming Pickleball Clinics

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.

There are three levels to our Beginner Clinics with each level helping you to build upon the skills you are learning. The Intro to Pickleball session is for absolute beginners. The Pickleball Fundamentals clinic builds upon what brand new players have recently learned. The Advanced Pickleball Fundamentals clinic teaches you how to play smarter, hit unattackable balls and how to force opponents to make a mistake.

Intermediate Clinics are also available to help players improve their understanding of strategies needed to win points.

Paddles and balls will be provided and participation is capped at 12 players for each clinic so that everyone will receive individualized coaching time. $45 per player. (Both the Play with Coaching and Skills & Drills sessions are $50 per player.)

Instructors: John Moore (bio) and Sandy Halkett (bio)

Location: Indoors at Victor Gym in Greer, SC (map), unless otherwise noted
