Learn about the Ben and Collin Johns Pickleball Clinic on Saturday, October 17 (...and REGISTER!)

Save the date! On Saturday, October 17, 2020, world's #1 Ben Johns, #4 Collin Johns, and Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR) Pro of the Year Jarrett Chirico,will conduct two 3-hour clinics for members and non-members at Pickleballerz in Chantilly, Va. Advanced and Intermediate-level pickleball players are invited to participate in the clinics to learn pickleball techniques, enjoy a 30-minute pro exhibition, and get photos and autographs with the Johns brothers.

While the Johns brothers in particular are best known in the pickleball community for their world rankings (Ben is #1 and Collin is #4), it’s important to know another fact: they both grew up in Maryland. With familiarity to the DMV area, a background in tennis, and expertise in the fastest-growing sport in America, they’re coming to Pickleballerz to share their insights and knowledge. Ben currently holds all (3) Major Doubles Titles and (2/3) Major Singles Titles. He’s also the first Pro Male to Triple Crown at a Major. Collin has racked up gold medals in Men’s Pro Doubles at pickleball tournaments that include the Franklin Masters, Triple Crown, the Florida Grand Slam, and the Golden State Championships.

As much as you can find them out on the pickleball courts playing, they spend an ample amount of time also teaching pickleball for all skill levels through their Johns & Johns Pickleball Camps.

At Pickleballerz, Ben and Collin will be joined by Director of Racquets at Baltimore Country Club Jarrett Chirico, the PPR 2020 Pro of the Year and founder of clay court pickleball.
