Pickleball Lessons In Scottsdale, Arizona

Pickleball is my obsession! I started playing in 2015 after my mother (who is 82) kept raving about how much fun it is. Since then, I've given up my 6 handicap golf game and play and teach pickleball 4-5 days a week. I've medaled in multiple tournaments and played in the 2017 and 2018 USA Pickleball Association National Championships. That is me in the photo with the black and yellow paddle. I look forward to helping you with your pickleball game. See you on the courts, Mark

We recently finished building a brand new private pickleball court at our home in North Scottsdale (photo below). We are about 1 mile from Cactus Road and Hwy 101, just south of the Scottsdale Airpark. When you book a lesson online you will receive an email with the exact address.

At this time all of my clinics and private lessons are sold out through the spring of 2021 and I do not teach during the summer. To be notified when my fall of 2021 schedule opens, please join my mailing list.

“I have been taking lessons from Mark and found him to be an excellent instructor. He is detail-oriented, has a great knowledge of the game and his teaching skills are terrific. He works with me on such areas as strategy, accuracy in placement of the ball, serves, dinking, and swing. I highly recommend him to people at all levels of the game.” David Liberman
