"The level of success achieved in competition is directly proportional to the intensity of practice employed before competing."
Todd is a 4.5 pickleball player and has been playing the sport since 2014. He has served as "head tournament referee" at the Middletown, OH USAPA sanctioned pickleball tournament each year since 2016. In 2016, he became the "Pickleball Specialist" at the Mason (OH) Community Center where he gives beginning pickleball lessons and manages the pickleball program for 150+ seniors. He also gives private lessons, hosts clinics and organizes pickleball tournaments at The Court Yard Sportsplex in West Chester, OH. He loves teaching and coaching and seeing improvement in his students.

I thoroughly enjoy our sessions... he inspires me to keep working to meet my goals.
“Weekly lessons with Todd over just 6 weeks have closed many gaps in my game. I am a 4.0 player working hard to move to next level, and Todd meets me where I am and with what I need each week based on my results.
Todd is extremely knowledgeable in the game and is an expert player himself. He provides clear, concise feedback and then drills with me until the muscle memory takes hold. I thoroughly enjoy our sessions and he inspires me to keep working to meet my goals.”
Each lesson has made marked improvement in my game.
“I am currently a 4.5, rising pickleball player. I began taking lessons from Todd Jungling because I needed to fine tune and hone in on skills I had, and skills I needed to continue my growth in the game. I am quick, fast hands, can return shots, however, I was still lacking in certain areas. I needed the know how, and an outsider who has the ability and insight that Todd has, to take me to the next level.
After my first lesson, I seriously felt the improvement and knowledge that I needed. I have continued weekly with lessons, and each lesson has made marked improvement in my game. Lessons are not just for beginners. Lessons are for those who realize they have room for improvement, and willing to work for it.”
I have improved in all my gap areas. I categorically could not have done that without the intense 1-hour lessons, strong encouragement & patience from Todd...
“I have an extensive "racquets" background but after playing pickleball for 20 months, I was stuck making the same mistakes over and over again. Enter Todd – at the very first lesson he identified skill gaps in my soft game, a strong tendency to go for winners and a definite lack of patience.
Over the course of the last two months, I have improved in all these gap areas. I categorically could not have done that without the intense one hour lessons, strong encouragement and patience from Todd as I finally started to get it.
I would recommend Todd without hesitation and plan to go back for lessons as I continue my pickleball learning journey."

For the health and safety of those taking lessons, and to err on the side of caution, I have decided to cancel all pickleball lessons and clinics through March 29, 2020. Following this period, and based on CDC and state recommendations, we will reassess the opportunity of getting back on the indoor and/or outdoor courts. Stay safe!
