Pickleball is easy to learn. But a challenge to master. Out of concern for your safety, the safety of our existing players and with consideration for the overall playing experience for everyone on the courts we strongly encourage you to participate in an initial training program with a coach by signing up for one of our Beginner Orientation Clinics.
We have an Orientation Program that is very effective at jump-starting your introduction to the game of pickleball . And very qualified Coaches to conduct that class! Our Orientation classes are conducted multiple times a week—by appointment— before regular play begins. And classes are usually limited to four students.
You might also watch several youtube videos of actual games. This, too, will help you internalize the game. Don’t worry if you don’t understand everything. Your coach will explain and demonstrate it all during your orientation. He/She will also play several “training games” with you. Additionally, Thursday evenings at Ephesus Park have court time dedicated to beginning play, and often coaching is available.Click here to schedule an orientation session
Then when you are ready to begin just write and suggest a date to come in for your orientation. We’ll contact you and will work with you to find a day that works for you and our schedule. There are no fees associated with our clinics or with our pickleball play. You will, however, have to sign a Liability Waiver before training begins. Sturdy athletic shoes are also required to play on the court.
We’re friendly, FUN, welcoming and ready when you are. Hope to see you on the court soon!
