Get Better with Group Clinics

We have clinics for all levels, from beginner through intermediate and advanced.

There are typically beginner clinics once a month at each of the tennis clubs, and we are doing weekly intermediate/advanced sessions at each club.

Many of our Clinics include the use of a Pickleball Tutor ball machine. This gives us a reliable, consistent, and fast way to improve your skills - a true "game-changer".

Tutor

Beginners Intro and Skills Development Clinics

The Intro clinics are designed for newcomers to the game. If you have not played before, or you have played just enough to know the basics, then this class is for you.

We will review the basic rules, practice the essential shots, and get you playing an actual game. These clinics are generally sponsored by one of our participating tennis clubs, and are usually available to members and non-members of the clubs.

The Skills Development clinics are four-week sessions, scheduled as two-hour clinics once a week.

Check the list of scheduled clinics on the following pages.

Intermediate Skills Development Clinics

These are four-week sessions, scheduled as two-hour sessions once a week. Intermediate players will be introduced and drilled on the skills necessary to improve their games to a more advanced level.

Pre-Tournament Preparation Clinics

These are typically three hour clinics, specifically designed to refresh and drill the skills that are essential to competitive pickleball.

Current offerings include clinics for the Eastern Canadian Regional Championships. The clinics are being held at the Trend Arlington Tennis Club in Ottawa on July 19th.

Youth development programs

We are extremely interested in building a solid corps of young pickleball players at the club. Since this is our first attempt at this, we are thinking that twelve years old would be the minimum age, and fifteen might be the maximum (we hope to be having a separate program for older youth).

The first step is a FREE two hour clinic where the kids (both boys and girls) will be introduced to the game. If there is sufficient interest, then we will implement a four-week program that we hope will allow for rapid development. The first introductory clinics will be held on Saturday, May 11, at Trend Arlington Tennis Club. Pre-registration is required and just click the link below to get signed up.

Pickleball is a fun and demanding sport, highly competitive, and requires skill, agility, and good eye-hand co-ordination. It is not just an old person's sport.

Private Lessons

For the best in personal attention, we also offer private lessons. There is no better way to work on specific issues than one-on-one. Follow the link below for details.

Video Reviews

Video reviews are EYE-OPENERS! Get a group of four together and we will make specific recommendations and show you PROOF of why.
