Larry Nortunen, RRDPC Academy Manager
The RRDPC hosted the first pickleball academy of 2018 on January 16 through 18 for new Pickleball Club Members.
Academy sessions include introductory information on pickleball rules, scoring, basic strokes, game strategy and when and where to play. After completing the academy graduates will feel comfortable to begin play both indoors and on our outdoor courts. Separate play groups are established to accommodate all levels of players.
Pickleball is a great sport for exercise, camaraderie and fun. Of special interest is the number of couples participating in the training and follow-on play as well.
Due to the popularity of the pickleball academies, both of the February Academies have already been filled. Beginning in March, two outdoor academies will be offered each month. Go to the club website www.rrdpc.com to find the next academy dates and to register. The club website also provides information on club membership, facilities, events, tournaments, shootouts and skills classes. Keep on playing regularly and look for additional training opportunities announced on the website and in newsletters.
