Owner, My Pickleball Coach

I’ve had the pleasure to work with Michael both as my pickleball coach and as a travel business colleague. As a coach, Michael is very knowledgeable about the game and coaches with the appropriate level of skill depth and intensity for the group situation. I’ve seen players make big improvements even with only one session with Michael. He conveys that working on the fundamentals are important, but also conveys game strategy to help us become more efficient and effective players. As a travel business colleague, he works very collaboratively with me to design our group pickleball and wellness trips. We design our retreats with player development, health and fun in mind. We believe that complementing pickleball with yoga and/or other exercise is an effective way to maintain health during our retreats. We also enjoy that pickleball provides a great social outlet and is wonderful for mental health. For players who want to learn pickleball from having never played to the mid-level player, that is where Michael truly enjoys coaching and excels. I strongly encourage you to engage with Michael during one of his pickleball wellness trips!
