Prescott Pickleball Association
A Paddle Above!
Lessons & Clinics
The dates were August 27 thru 29. They provided the latest in terms of technology (video analysis), play (strategy) and court awareness (access to a professional player who teaches and plays). The courts were full for all three days. This will probably be an event that will return to Prescott next year.
Lesson will go over basic safety and equipment, rules of the game, and some beginner play. There will be paddles and balls available for those without equipment. Sneakers, preferably tennis shoes, required. You may repeat the lesson to improve your comfort and understanding of the game before attending a Novice Lesson. Beginner Lessons start 10 am EVERY FRIDAY, meet at court 1. BEGINNER LESSONS ARE FREE TO THE PUBLIC! Please check the calendar for special events that may require canceling classes.
When you successfully complete this Novice Lesson, you will start hitting forehands more consistently, show improvement in control, demonstrate more frequent use of the backhand stroke, and know how to hit an overhead stroke (the SLAM). You also will become aware of the “soft game,” as well as the proper service technique and importance of serving it DEEP, returning it DEEP and approaching the NVZ. Cost is $10 for non members, FREE to PPA Members. Please check the calendar for special events that may require canceling classes.
The Prescott Pickleball Association offers intermediate clinics free to PPA members and $10 to nonmembers. This clinic stresses doubles strategy and stroke technique. You MUST have experience equivalent to a USAPA 3.0/3.5 skill level to attend. Please check the calendar for special events that may require canceling classes.
Beginner Lessons are FREE to the public ; Novice and Intermediate lessons are free to PPA members ($10 otherwise).
Clinics are held at the Pioneer Park courts, dates and times are listed on our Home Page Master Calendar
