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.

2019 Beginning Pickleball Lesson

Prescott Pickleball Association is providing a FREE Beginning Pickleball Lesson for new players at the public outdoor Prescott Pickleball Courts at Pioneer Park. 

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. It is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

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. 

Clinics will be held at the Pioneer Pickleball Courts located at 1195 Commerce Drive, Prescott AZ 86305. For Dates and Times, Please see the PPA Calendar under News & Events.
