The Training Committee is planning to provide training for all members. This will be done as beginner training as well as organized event such as drills with and without the ball machine recently purchased. These types of training events will be free. If there are any other MBPC members interested in providing training for free or professionally, please send Lisa Bair or me an email.
The Training Committee will also coordinate with professional trainers for advanced training. These will have a cost associated with them which will differ based upon the trainer. The club does not pay for these training events nor receive any money from them.
There are two local pickleball trainers that have contacted the club to offer their services to club members; Kristen Meyers and Vicki Kelly. Kristen is a member of the MBPC and one of the top women players in the area. Vicki plays at North Myrtle Beach and has PPR certification. Attached are brochures from both for your review. If you are interested in knowing more, please contact them directly.
The Committee has coordinated with Vicki Kelly to come to South Strand on Wednesday, January 30 at 11:30-12:30 to provide an overview of the training she can provide as listed in the brochure. This will be discussion only, no pickleball play. We have verified that we can meet in the South Strand gym at the back. Due to the space, we will limit the overview to 20 players. We will be sending out an event email separately, so anyone interested in attending the overview can register.
The committee will work with Kristen to setup a similar overview session as well.
