Do you want to learn how to play Pickleball but aren’t sure where to start? Then Pickleball 101 is for you! The class is free and you don’t need to be a member of Pictona. (Warning: You may become addicted to pickleball and will then want to join Pictona.)
Our PB 101 class is an hour of instruction during which time you will learn the basics of the game with our capable Pictona volunteer instructors. Classes are limited to 8 or less participants to maximize your opportunity to learn about Pickleball and participate in skill instruction. Under the instructor’s guidance you will be introduced to the soft game of pickleball known as dinking, shown how to volley, given the opportunity to hit ground strokes and instructed on how to serve. You will learn the rules of pickleball as you progress through the class. The culmination of the hour will have you keeping score and playing a game of pickleball! After the hour session you are invited to stay and play on the courts at Pictona for as long as you like that day.
PB 101 participants are welcome to join us in The Kitchen, Pictona's onsite restaurant, for a tasty meal and cold drink after play. When checking in at the Welcome Desk be sure to pick up your coupon for a free fountain drink! Check out The Kitchen menu here.
We offer PB 101 two times a week. Tuesday mornings 9am to 10am and Thursday evenings 5pm to 6pm. We will provide paddles and balls for the class or bring your own paddle if you have one. Please wear athletic shoes and comfortable clothing for the class.
