Professional pickleball coach Mark Renneson returns to Richmond for 2 days of fun, fast-paced and highly practical groups clinics and private lessons. Please see below for more details. These brand new sessions are limited to 12 participants.
All About Offence
High quality pickleball requires that players have a good understanding of when and how they can go on offense. This session is focused on the technical, tactical and decision-maiking skills needed to be able to put your opponents in trouble. Areas of focus will include using the serve and the return to gain an advantage, hitting challenging third shots, as well as finishing strong up at the net. Note: while this session is devoted to offensive pickleball play, that does not mean it is all about hitting hard. This session will also examine the many ways that slow balls can be effective offensive tools. Limited to 12 participants. Skill level 3.0/3.5
Defence Wins Championships
One of the things that separates levels of players is their ability to get out of trouble. Being a good defender means that you can get yourself out of a jam whether at the net, back at the baseline or somewhere in between. In this intermediate session players will develop the strategies and techniques needed to become a more consistent player by playing great defence. Players should be at the 3.0 or 3.5 level. Limited to 12 participants.
For those who want even more personal attention, there are only 4 90-minute private lessons available. The person who reserves it may take the lesson on their own or invite up to 3 other people to join them. $180
