This class assumes that you know the basic rules and scoring of Pickleball. If you don't, then sign up for my "Intro to Pickleball Class" instead.

If your goal when playing Pickleball is "to get the ball over the net". Then this is the class for you. I will give you advice for footwork, grip, technique and ready position to help you hit the ball more consistently. (This is NOT a class for 3.0 and above players. This is for 2.5 and below level of players whose goal is to simply hit the ball.)

IMPORTANT: Class Pre Requisites

You know how to keep score and the basic rules of Pickleball. 

Demo Paddles Available to Test During Class

You will also have access to demo some of the top paddles in the game. Feel free to try out some of the following paddles listed here in my blog post: I will bring them to class and you can test out a few for fun while we learn.

How do I pay to reserve my spot?

You will need to prepay to reserve your spot. You can pay me directly (Coach Calvin Keeney) through Venmo ( or Paypal (email 

Can I retake the class?

Yes you may retake the class if you want to become more comfortable with the class material. This class is my most repeated class because we learn a lot of tips in the class. And it's normal for muscle memory to take awhile when learning something complex such as hitting a ball with a paddle :)

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

Let me know if you need to cancel your reservation. If you do so 5 or more days before the class, then you will get your money back minus a $10 admin fee. If you cancel 3-5 days before class, then you will receive 50% of your money back. There is a "no refund policy" for cancelling 2 or less days before class. (A lot of these classes fill up so please cancel early so others can take your spot.)

*Note - It might be possible to take a different session if you give me enough time in advance. Ask me for options and I can help you find what's best.
