Referee Training Session

Lenny Friedman, USAPA Ambassador, will be offering a referee training session on September 9th from 1:00-3:30 in the Conference Room at the Kino Center.  If interested, please click here to reserve a spot.

Take the referee training and improve your pickleball play by expanding your knowledge of the game.  A referee's primary responsibilities are to watch for foot faults on the serve and non-volley lines, to keep track of the score, and to keep a constant pace of the game. Being engaged in the flow of play will help you improve your own play. 

Taking the referee training  does not obligate you to referee in any of the upcoming tournaments at Quail Creek, but your volunteering is appreciated by those running and playing in tournaments.  Referee's aide in providing standardized good play for all.  

Good referees are always appreciated.  Please join us.
