Private Lessons

These 1 hour lessons are tailored to the skill level of the player and the desired objectives. A Private Pickleball Lesson for 1-2 players is the ultimate learning environment. The time is totally dedicated to the player and what they need and want out of the lesson. No matter what your skill level or goals, a private lesson at Chicken N Pickle will help you advance your game, hone your skill development and enhance your overall enjoyment of the sport

Semi-Private or Group Lessons

If you and a group of 3-4 players with similar abilities would like to improve your game, then a Semi-Private Pickleball Lesson could be the best for you. Having a group to share the learning experience certainly enhances the journey and provides a game plan to help each other improve. This format is especially good for beginners to get started learning this great game. We also will be happy to find another Chicken N Pickle player to match you up with, if necessary.

3 or 4 and A Pro Play Lesson

The 3 and A Pro Lesson allows a Chicken N Pickle teaching professional to play along in games which allows immediate feedback on shot selection, strategic decisions and court positioning. This is a very effective learning environment for all levels of players when working on doubles strategy and tactics. In addition, time can be dedicated to developing new shots and partnership development as well.
