Introductory Lessons are scheduled for two hours. You must attend the full two-hour session.  Each person is allowed to take two free lessons.  The basics of pickleball will be taught including the rules, scoring, court position, 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 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.
