Robert and Jodi bring their teaching experience, expertise and passion for Pickleball to the court, helping you believe & achieve!  By folllowing some simple basics...they can help you achieve your goals of becoming a 4.5/5.0 Pickleball player. 

 

Do you need to have a tennis, racketball, or other racket/paddle sport background to be a 4.5/5.0 player.  The answer is an astonishing 'NO'.  But let's step back for moment.  What does 4.5/5.0 mean.  In typical racket/paddle sports, they have a grading system, 2.5, 3.0, up to 5.0 (being the best).  By following some basic instructions, techniques, and strategies, just about anyone can become a 4.5/5.0 level Pickleball player.

 

Pickleball is a sport for all ages.  Our children (ages 13 & 15) play and travel to places such as Arizona, California, Michigan and Utah to play tournaments.  We live adjacent to the Pickleball Center of Florida (The Villages) where seniors play and enjoy the sport on over 200 courts every day of the year.  We started in our 40's.  It's a great sport for everyone of all ages.
