"I discovered Pickleball in 2002, when I was competing in the National Senior Tennis Circuit. I was able to hit the ball well, and “thought” I knew how to play, since I had played 5.5 tennis and was certified by the USPTA as a teaching professional. I was WRONG thinking I knew how to play Pickleball; and it took me years of competing, using my tennis techniques and falling short of the winners’ podium, to realize I needed to find another way to play this game.

The changes were simple, but not easy; and took lots of intensive drilling, video taping, and sessions with my coach. My determination and commitment became my assets; and I learned to play “smart”, with patience and discipline.  As a result of my efforts and a great coach, I achieved my highest goals by winning Gold Medals in the 2012 USAPA National Championships in Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles. Since then, I’ve won five more National Gold Medals, plus nine World Games Championships.

"Pat’s Picklosophy” is my way to guide players toward safer more efficient movement, and more fun and success on the pickleball court. I am available for private and semi-private lessons, plus custom groups by appointment. Contact me for details.  (760)310-6847 pickleballpat@yahoo.com
