Pickleball Beginners Clinic


Enrichment / Youth & Teen Enrichment -
Summer 2024

Youth, Teen, and Adult: Ages 14 and up

Dive into the exciting world of pickleball with our immersive beginners clinic, designed to kickstart your journey on the court. Led by our certified pickleball instructor, 3 hour sessions are tailored for individuals who are new to the game or at level 2.0 to 3.0. Each session is a standalone class, so you can attend just one session or as many as you like.

In this clinic, you'll receive personalized guidance as we focus on laying a solid foundation of pickleball fundamentals. From understanding the rules of the game to mastering essential strokes like serves, returns, third shots, volleys, dinks, and overheads. Our instructor will provide step-by-step instruction and hands-on practice to help you grasp each concept.

With small class sizes limited to 12 students across 3 courts, you'll benefit from individualized attention and ample opportunities to refine your skills. Whether you're a complete beginner or have played a few times but lack confidence, this clinic is designed to equip you with the knowledge and confidence to step onto the court with ease.

Comprehensive Beginner 3-Hour Standalone Program Covers:

Rules: Introduction to scoring and all essential game rules.
Serving and Returning: Understanding grip, purpose, positioning, placement, technique, and basic strategy.
Dinking: Exploring the purpose, techniques, strategy, shifting, and communication in dinking.
Transitioning from Baseline to Non-Volley Line:  Focus on 3rd shot drops and drives to facilitate effective transition.
Punch Volleys: Techniques for dealing with aggressive shots and "bangers".
Offensive Shots:  Introduction to drives, lobs, and overheads.
Beginner Drills and Games: Practice sessions and games built around every shot covered above, reinforcing learning in a dynamic and engaging manner.

All clinics will be held at the Eisenhower High School tennis courts. The marks on the courts are only a couple of inches off actual pickleball lines, but will not have an impact on the clinic. Please remember to bring your own paddle or opt for our camp package, which includes a new paddle for your convenience. Join us and embark on your pickleball journey with enthusiasm and excitement!
