FAQ's

How often you choose to take pickleball lessons depends on how quickly you hope to improve. If you are a beginner who wants to learn pickleball quickly so you can play with friends or you are an advanced player getting ready for a tournament, purchasing a larger lesson package up front for less per hour might be in your best interest. If you just want to try out pickleball, a smaller lesson package will allow you to ease into lessons before committing to more.

Working with a pickleball coach for private 1-on-1 instruction is key for the development of a new or seasoned pickleball player. Private pickleball lessons can help you grasp the nuances of the game quicker, hit as many shots as possible, and form a bond with a qualified coach who is invested in your improvement.

Pickleball can be great for kids, former athletes looking for a new activity, someone who is trying to stay in shape, or anyone in between. Basically, pickleball is for people of all ages, skill levels, and skill. Even if you have never played any other racquet sports, pickleball is accessible to anyone. Private lessons help you feel comfortable as a first time tennis player.

If you are someone who has never played pickleball before, don’t fret! As long as you have sneakers you can run and cut in, athletic clothing you’re willing to seat in, and water bottle full of water, you’re good to go. If you do not yet have a paddle, talk to your pickleball coach to be sure that they bring in extra. Eventually you will want your own but talking it over with your coach and being sure pickleball is right for you before making a purchase.

For many people pickleball will be a new activity so understanding your needs is the first step to finding the right pickleball coach. If your goal is to be confident enough to go to the courts and play with new people then we can match you with the right coach. If you are looking to enter tournaments eventually then we have the right coach. When you do a search for coaches in your area, be sure to look at their years teaching experience as well as their qualifications as a barometer for suitability. Location and availability are two other factors you should consider when you are signing up with a local pickleball coach as well.

If you have never played pickleball before you can expect to get a crash course in all things pickleball. From rules, to skills, to going through the basics, you will get a good sense of the game of pickleball. If you have experience playing pickleball, be sure to discuss that with your coach prior to your first lesson to ensure that the lesson is curtailed to your needs and skill level. No matter your skill level, this is also a good chance to get to know your coach and be sure that they are exactly what you need from a coach.

MyPickleballLessons allows you to compare coaches in your area who have varying degrees of experience. Because pickleball has only recently grown in popularity, many coaches may not yet have qualifications, but years of playing and teaching experience will be a good indication of teaching skill. Besides your coach having skill themselves, be sure they are not only someone used to working with someone of your skill level but also has a personality that matches your own. Being on the same page with your coach throughout your lessons is key for improvement.

Yes, because teaching skill doesn’t always mean your coach will be the perfect fit for you. You may choose a coach that is perfect for your skill level but your personalities don’t match or you may realize you are looking for more of a challenge. Regardless, until you step on the pickleball court you can never be 100% sure your coach is the perfect fit and for that reason we always do our best to switch you to another local coach in the same price range. You can always email us [email protected] if you would like help getting set up with a new pickleball coach.

If you have used up your pickleball lessons you can easily search in your area, compare coaches, and sign up for another pickleball lesson package on a new coaches profile. Whether you feel ready to work with a more experienced coach, you are moving to a new city, or would simply like to try a new coach, we make it easy to find the right pickleball coach. If you have pickleball lessons remaining in your package, you can email us [email protected] if you would like to switch them to another coach.

There is no better way to get better at pickleball than with private lessons. Individual attention and the number of reps play a huge factor in a player's development that can go a long way in helping you enjoy the game more with friends or excel in a competitive environment. With pickleball lessons, many people want to take advantage of the social aspect of the game so in most cases your pickleball coach will be able to accommodate that. Each additional person you add to the lessons is $10, which means that the overall price per hour is cheaper when more people are involved.

When you sign up with MyPickleballLessons account you will receive emails with deals on pickleball lesson packages. Throughout the year, we will have coupon codes available to use at checkout to get a discount on your purchase. Also, the more friends you have to take pickleball lessons with and the more lessons you purchase up front, the less your pickleball lessons will cost per hour.

It’s not hard to learn the rules of pickleball at all! Even if you have never played sports with similar rules like tennis (always needs to be one bounce on the serve and return however) or scoring like ping pong (single point scoring with games to 11, 15, or 21), one lesson with a qualified pickleball coach and you will have all the rules down. You’ll understand the saying “stay out of the kitchen” in no time. Learn more here.

Many local tennis courts are being repurposed, either permanently or temporarily, into pickleball courts. Each tennis court location is different in terms of allowing pickleball so it is something you will either need to check on in person or discuss with a local pickleball coach. Any court location that a pickleball coach has listed on his MyPickleballLessons.com profile will be court locations where the coach knows they are able to teach lessons.

Even though both sports are racquet sports where you hit a ball over a net, there are many key differences between pickleball and tennis. Tennis courts are larger. Pickleball racquets are smaller and solid material. Tennis balls are rubber and pickleball balls are plastic. Besides the material differences, there are key differences in scoring and rules.

Like any other coach, all pickleball coaches have varying degrees of experience, skill levels, and specialties. Even though pickleball has only recently grown in popularity there have been people playing and coaching for years who are qualified to help beginners and advanced players alike. When comparing coach profiles, always be sure to check out years playing and coaching, qualifications, and teaching specialties.

Yes! Certifications are a great way to know if your pickleball coach is qualified. There are qualifications coaches can get through the USPTA (United States Professional Tennis Association), the IPTPA (International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association), and PPR (Professional Pickleball Registry) among others. As a sport that is growing in popularity, there are new certification bodies being created to help grow the sport, with some of them more official than others, so be sure to do your research if your coach has a certification you have never heard of.

Even though pickleball and tennis have many similarities, there are just as many differences. If you are a beginner or intermediate tennis player then pickleball lessons would help you learn the skills and strategy used in pickleball. If you are an experienced tennis or other racquet sport player, then those skills should translate well to pickleball. That doesn’t mean however, that pickleball lessons would help you to learn the many nuances of the game that vary greatly from tennis. A qualified and experienced coach can help the most seasoned athlete excel on the pickleball court.

Your pickleball coach will always provide the balls for lessons and if you do not have a paddle for your first lesson, let your coach know and they should have an extra one you can use. For future lessons you should purchase your own paddles, especially if you plan to play outside of your pickleball lessons.
