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.

In 2004, I began dedicating my time and energy exclusively to promoting and playing Pickleball; and looked to the winners to discover what I was missing. Finally, through many discussions and a great coach, I found the answer: I WAS DOING TOO MUCH!! So, the GOOD NEWS was; if I did less with the shot, I would accomplish more. The BAD NEWS was; I had to change nearly everything I had learned in my 30 years of tennis. Instead of focusing on power, I had to learn to make accurate, soft shots. I was surprised to discover that there is way more strategy in Pickleball than in Tennis.

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
