Pickleball play, camps and lessons are coming back! Wherever you are in the world your pickleball options to play or not to play have been all over the “court.” I’m in Southern California and our open play on public courts have not really happened since mid-March when life changed. For the last couple months, play has been allowed if you “bring your own foursome”. It seems locations are carefully lifting restrictions and oddly enough I know of some states that never closed courts and lessons were never interrupted.
My hope is that you are getting some play, for your health and sanity, even if it’s befriending your neighbor who has a backyard court.
The last 5 weeks I’ve been venturing out playing at private courts and boy did it feel great! And, a few days ago, my first since early March, I competed at the PPA Showcase tournament in Newport Beach, CA (a private Tennis Club) in doubles. It felt so great to get out and play with my long-time doubles partner Alex Hamner. This was long overdue as we hadn’t competed together since the November 2019 Nationals. I forgot how much I LOVE the feeling of being in the mental ZONE during competition.
So, with more pickleball play happening and restrictions easing, I am very excited to share the following camps with you that I will be a part of. I would love you to join me as I share my tips, techniques and strategies of how you can improve your game. Learn from the pros that have been where you want to go.
