I've been running an Advanced Beginner/Intermediate level Pickleball group for over a year. Since then, we've had lots of requests from new beginners on how to get started, so here is a way for you to do so!
Some people start by just jumping right in on the courts with the more advanced group and getting a "trial by fire". This usually works fine if you are athletic, and have experience with other racquet sports such as tennis or racquetball.
However, if you're uncomfortable with playing together with a group of strangers before you have a lesson, contact me and we'll see if we can set up a private lesson, or perhaps a semi-private lesson, with you and a friend. I am available some mornings and evenings. A one-hour lesson will usually be all it takes to get you comfortable to play with our group. We'll go over the how to hit the ball, rules, scoring, serving and basic strategy.
