SaddleBrooke Pickleball Association (SPA) offers introductory lessons for beginners

Shawne Cryderman

Any SaddleBrooke resident is welcome to attend the introductory lesson. The focus of the introductory lesson is to allow people of all ages and skills to have the opportunity to get on the court and play this fun, phenomenal, full of “good times” game.

At the end of the intro lesson, participants will have the knowledge of the basics of the game and be encouraged to join SPA and continue with the assisted play program.

The only prerequisite or “must have” for the intro lesson is an interest in learning a new sport and the desire to have fun and do your personal best. You do not have to be a member of SPA to take the introductory lesson.

For additional information and to secure a spot on the introductory lesson roster, please contact Shawne Cryderman at sfcrydo@yahoo.com or call 520-818-2690.

Lessons are Wednesday, Oct. 23, 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. or Friday, Oct 25, 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Pickleball Courts 4, 5, and 6 at Ridgeview.

The cost is $10, payable the day of the lesson in cash (exact amount) or by check made out to SPA.

Please wear non-marking tennis shoes – no sandals or flip flops, and a visor/cap, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Bring water with you to stay hydrated!

**Paddles and pickleballs will be provided. We suggest you do not purchase a paddle prior to attending the lesson since not all paddles are SPA approved.
