Meet Your Instructors
As Michiana's only certified instructors, we are confident we can help you raise the level of your game and your pickleball rating. While our primary focus is on experienced beginners through 4.5 level players, it is not only on tournament players. We understand everyone wants to get better, so they can sustain longer rallies, get invited to more playing opportunities, and simply have more fun.
