LET US HELP YOU FIND YOUR GAME!
Located in Destin/fort walton beach Florida...get some sand between your toes!
At Performance Pickleball Emerald Coast we believe there is not one way, but an infinite number of ways to play pickleball. However, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to play, based on physical abilities and strengths.
We are passionate about the game of pickleball. Everyone at Performance Pickleball wants to see the game grow and prosper. As the fastest growing sport in America, there are a lot of new players coming to the game, wanting to learn and play. We understand that there are many coaches, clinics, and camps to choose from in the USA, and even around the world. Many of the practice drills, game situations, and instruction we use are not that different from many others. Any coach that is excited about Pickleball has searched out every conceivable drill and game there is to make clinics & lessons fun and easy. Where we believe Performance Pickleball is different is in the "How it is done". We do not teach a way to play pickleball, we teach YOUR way to play pickleball, Meaning, we teach you how to play and then develop your game around your physical abilities and strengths. Everyone needs to know the basics- rules, dinks, drives, volleys, lobs, serves, and the basic strategy of the game. Once we start moving on from learning the basics, we have to add in your abilities and limitations. If you have the ability to hit the ball hard, you need to play a different type of game than the player that cannot drive the ball. If you are fast or slow, limited mobility or a gumby (lots of mobility), fast reactor or not so fast, all should factor in how YOU play and strategize the game. Many Camps, Clinics and lessons teach one way...we are very dedicated to teaching pickleball YOUR way...the best way for you! This is how sports should be taught. If you watch the best players in any sport they all play different. They play to their strengths, and what feels right. Let us help you find YOUR GAME, YOUR WAY!
Another way we are differentiate ourselves is we focus on nuero muscular training, (teaching the mind to tell your muscles what you want them to do) as well as working on multi-directional speed, and hand eye coordination. We believe this training has the ability to improve your game along with the new skills and strategies you will learn. This is training you can take home and continue to improve over time!
Come learn with us, and learn to play YOUR best!
