Skills and Drills

Are you having trouble practicing skills during rec play? Join our coaches as they help you drill the skills you’d like to work on most. Every session is a different experience!

 

Feeling Confident at Midcourt
Getting to the kitchen line is key to winning points in pickleball, but rushing through midcourt leaves you vulnerable. In this class you’ll learn how to steadily approach the kitchen, so you can conserve energy and feel comfortable returning shots midcourt.


Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!
In a doubles match, having solid teamwork can make or break your chance to win. In this class, we will drill and discuss teamwork strategies. Then, we will play games in a tournament mindset. This class is perfect for a team who is preparing for their first league or tournament.


Refining Your Soft Game
Do you struggle against bangers? Are you having trouble sustaining your dinks? Then this is the class for you. You’ll learn how to slow the pace of the game and how to strategically use the soft game to get your opponent off balance and set your team up for a great put away.


Adding Variety to Your Game
When should you drop, dink, drive, or lob? In this class, you’ll get a chance to practice all four of those shots learning how to use them assertively and strategically while also learning techniques for countering those shots when they’re used against you.
