“The level of success achieved in competition is directly proportional to the intensity of practice employed before competing.”

What People are Saying

I enjoy each lesson with Todd, and always see noticeable improvement after working with him.

He’s taken me from a 2.0 player to winning at the 4.5 level.

I recommend Todd’s lessons to players of any level who want to improve their skills and take their pickleball game to the next level.
I am currently a 4.5, rising pickleball player. 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 so much fun during my pickleball lessons with Todd. Occasionally, I struggle with certain shots in game-play situations. Todd does a great job of recreating these situations on the practice court. He provides me with multiple iterations of the very specific shot(s) and technique needed to change my muscle memory. This was the principal reason I sought out a pro such as Todd. I have gotten better at these troubled shots with each lesson – and this improvement has also translated to game-play.
