Pickleball

Drill & Play (6 weeks)

Drills help us develop “muscle memory” to control “fine muscle movement”. Let’s face it, if you’re not comfortable with hitting a shot you’re not good at…you won’t use it in a game, and that will put at a disadvantage that your opponents will eventually discover.  Drills not only help you acquire new shot development skills, but it also adds to your overall shot selection repertoire, helps train you to automatically cover the open court, and cover your opponent’s open shot. So, if you’re serious about competitive play, or just want to improve your game.
