*********** PROFESSIONAL FEE-BASED TRAINING *****************

ProSports NM is adding an intro  to PB clinic/class for players who have never played or have had limited playing time.

The focus will be on basics; grip, stance, ready position, and foot movement patterns. The four basic skills of point of contact, stance, unit turn and use of subdominant hand will be emphasized. Pushing your shot utilizing pronation (palm of hand) and subination (back of hand) to ensure proper ball striking will also be emphasized.

The preferred commitment by the player will be to sign up for 4 classes held over 4 weeks. Each class will be 1 1/4 hours and the cost will be $48.00 total all four classes. Individual classes will be $15. Class size will be a maximum of 6 players.

If you know someone who would like to learn pickleball in a safe fun environment with a registered, certified pickleball professional instructor/coach we would appreciate the referral.
