This class assumes that you are getting to the kitchen on your return. We are going to focus on the second part of the Pickleball point where the returning team is both at the kitchen while the serving team is back waiting for the return to bounce. I will discuss different shots for both teams including the 3rd shot drop and drive. Along with the different types of 4th shot volleys that the returning team will use to keep the serving team away from the kitchen.

Players signing up for this class should be able to hit the ball clean and consistently. If your goal is to "just hit the ball over", please sign up for my "hitting the Pickleball" class instead.

This Intermediate Pickleball class is for players that are very comfortable with hitting the ball and having the ball hit hard towards them (we will practice drives from the baseline towards players at the kitchen.)

IMPORTANT: Class Pre Requisites

You must be able to honestly answer "Yes" to all of the questions/statements you are asked when enrolling for this class (such as being able to hit the ball consistently.) These questions are asked when enrolling for the class (after you have created an account and are logged in signing up). If you answer "no" to any of them, then your spot in class will not be confirmed.

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.
