About this event


Pickleball: Intermediate Clinic

The Pickleball Intermediate Clinic elevates your game, honing skills for extended rallies, controlled volleys (handling medium-paced shots, consistent shot placement, return, successful execution of lobs and dinks), and confident NVZ (Non-Volley Zone) play. Through targeted drills and game-simulated coaching sessions, you'll master basic strokes, predict opponents' moves, progress towards advanced clinics and play.

Level of Instruction: Intermediate – Adults. Candidates for the Intermediate Clinic should be able to engage in multi-shot rallies, play varying types of shots: including volleys, groundstrokes, dinks, drives and lobs.

Skills/Fundamentals Learned: Participants will learn:

Drop shot, shot placement


Spin (adding, reading and reacting to spin)

Serves (drop, “standard”, backhand and spin serves).

Specialty shots (Around the Post (ATP), Erne, Misdirecting shots)

Team positioning (communication, responsibilities, stacking, playing the NVZ, responding to the lob)

Playing style/philosophy

At completion of the Intermediate Clinic, the student should be able to work toward a 3.0 rating. Practice and play against opponents of greater skill level will improve the student’s abilities and help to graduate to higher skill ratings.
