Beginning Pickleball: Skills & Drills


With Jerry Saner

This course covers all aspects of the game of pickleball. Students will learn how to move on the court, how to hold the paddle and the different "shots" used in the game -- ground strokes, volley, serve. Students will learn about equipment, places to play, court etiquette, and rules. Each class will cover the same material each week, giving students a chance to practice and refine their game. Students will play real games, and they are encouraged to go play at the local venues to get game experience as well. Students are highly encouraged to watch any "how to" videos or real games on YouTube or the Pickleball Channel to see how the high-ranked and professional players play.
