DRILLS


2.0 Beginner Drills Please Note:

Since the season is winding down, we have a request. If you have
attended the drills many times and learned serves/returns, drop
shots, dinking, punch and block shots, overheads, lobs and drives,
please DO NOT sign up. We need to allow new members the same
opportunity.
Some folks have not learned all the shots yet and some are just
beginning their pickleball journey.
If you feel you need MORE assistance, please contact Kathy Vollink or
Karen Conner and we will try to work with you at another time.

2.0 Skills testing
For those of you who have been playing assisted play and 2.0 round
robins and feel ready to move on to the next level, please contact
Kathy Vollink or Karen Conner. We will be offering skills testing.
We will set a time to show you what you need to do and then set up a
time to do it. You will be playing as well.
