Announcement - Pickleball Clinic and Drill Change

The “Dinking with a Purpose Clinic” offered Wednesday, February 10th and the corresponding Drill offered Thursday, February 11th have been modified to make both sessions a CLINIC.  This change is being offered to accommodate more people into the clinic format due in part to the clinic’s popularity and in part to apparent confusion over the clinic and follow-up drill format.   The drill sign-up sheet will be replaced with a second clinic sign-up sheet for Thursday.  If you signed up for the Wednesday clinic and Thursday drill don’t worry, you’ll get a chance to drill in the clinic.  If you are on the wait list for the clinic or signed up for the drill only, sign-up again for the Thursday clinic and you’ll get both the instruction and a chance to drill.

This announcement provides a good opportunity to say thank you to everyone for your interest and participation in our newly expanded clinics and drills.  Your instructors donate time and energy to make them happen and find it very gratifying to have so many enthused participants trying to perfect their skills.  Please also note a couple of details about the program for your consideration:
  • Lessons, Clinics and Drills are offered at the same time each week: 11 am to 12:30 pm.  
    •  Beginner and Beginner Lessons are on Mondays and Tuesdays   
    • Clinics are on Wednesdays  
    •  Drills are set for Thursdays and Fridays
  • Lessons and Clinics are instructional and usual do not involve a lot of practice or play.  For this reason, follow-up mentoring is offered for beginners during structural play and Drills are scheduled following most clinics to allow for practice.
  • The Clinic and follow-up drill should be signed up for as a “package deal”.  If you go to a clinic you do not need to sign-up for the corresponding drill, but it is encouraged.  If you have attended a previous clinic (on the same topic) you may sign-up for the drill.  If you have not taken the clinic, please don’t sign-up for the drill unless you have the instructor’s approval.  This allows the instructor to assist with drilling and not take time to redo the clinic information to a select few.
  •  The Player Improvement Program is a work in progress.  Bear with us as we try to perfect the format and information flow.  Your feedback is encouraged and you can always drop a note in the suggestion box or talk to a board member.
