Hey there! My name is Calvin Keeney and I have been coaching Pickleball for over 3 years now.

This intro to Pickleball class is meant for new players looking to learn this exciting game. We will get you playing points while learning how to score. This class is NOT for people that have played more than 10 times and are comfortable with the rules and scoring. Please only sign up if you are completely new or have played a handful of times and want to learn the rules/scoring better.

Pickleball is most widely played in the doubles format (2 on 2). So we will focus on learning the scoring, rules and basic positioning/strategy for doubles. I have plenty of paddles for you to borrow and use (a lot of them are from the paddle list in the following paddle link). Or you can buy your own before class. These are the paddles I recommend:
