Introductory Lessons


  • Introductory Lessons are held during the months of October through March on a weekly basis.
  • Introductory Lessons during the months of April through September are held every two weeks. Check the Calendar of Events for current dates and times.

Lessons are for residents of the Grand. Bring your CAM Activity card to the lesson.

Introductory Lessons are scheduled for two hours. You must attend the full session.  Each person is allowed to take two free lessons.

The basics of pickleball will be taught including the rules, scoring, court positioning, and general strategy. Players will be divided into groups of four to eight per court with an experienced instructor coaching throughout the playing time.

Please bring water, wear tennis shoes (no slip-on shoes will be allowed) and sunglasses/eyewear. If you do not have a paddle, one will be supplied for you. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the lesson and meet your instructors in the pavilion.
