Offers Introductory Lessons for Beginners
Any SaddleBrooke resident is welcome to attend an introductory lesson on courts 7-9 at The Preserve. The cost is $10. Paddles and balls are provided. Participants must wear tennis or court shoes –no sandals or flip flops and bring water to stay hydrated. Sun screen, sun glasses and a hat with a brim or visor are also recommended.
Participants will be using the quiet Onix ball and will have the opportunity to actually play the game of pickleball, beginning with the basic skill of volleying the ball across net. The focus of the introductory lesson is to allow people of all ages and skills to have the opportunity to get on the court and play.
The only prerequisite or “must have” for the Intro lesson is an interest in learning a new sport and the desire to have fun and do your personal best. You do not have to be a member of SPA to take the Introductory Lesson.
