Pickleball Lessons

For Ages 18+

Maybe your friends play Pickleball. Perhaps you’re a tennis player looking for a new challenge. If you have a fun-loving mindset and an ounce of athletic ability, then Pickleball is the game you should begin playing!

For May, we are moving outside to our Community Park!

In this four-week program, you’ll learn how to effectively strike the ball, maintain a rally, keep score, and the rules and basic gameplay. At the conclusion of these lessons, players will have the foundational understanding and skills to start playing Pickleball. 

We also offer an Improver class. Maybe you have played a couple of times, or perhaps it's been a while since you've picked up a racquet, here is a way to brush up on those skills.  

Coach Dave Cousins is a combined PTR, USPTA, and IFP (International Federation of Pickleball) Certified Professional with many years of teaching experience in Southern Maine. He loves working with both juniors and adults, whether just starting out or playing at competitive levels. Dave's belief is that racket sports have a place for EVERYONE, of any age, ability, or skill set.

Time: 3:00 - 4:00 PM (Beginner Lessons)

4:00 - 5:00 PM (Improver Lessons)
