Introduction to Pickleball Classes
To promote this wonderful sport of pickleball to all our neighbors, the SCC Pickleball Club offers Introduction to Pickleball lessons to all SCC Community Association members. Our classes are given every Tuesday and Friday from 1-3PM over a 6-week period starting in mid-October and ending in mid-May. Each six-week session is made of a total of 12, 2-hour classes. At the end of six weeks, you’ll graduate and be able to confidently play with your friends and make new friends with other members of the club.
2023-24 Introduction to Pickleball Sessions
Our first six-week session in 2023 starts on Tuesday October 10 and our last six-week session starts on Tuesday April 9, 2024. Effective in 2023 we are asking for a $5 per person sign-up fee for students who are not yet members of the SCC Pickleball Club. Please bring your check made out to SCCPBC. If you choose to join the club, this $5 will be used towards the $27 yearly membership fee. Enrollment will start at the end of August. We will use the “SignUp Genius” application/website for signing up. In addition to having the link on this website, a notice will be printed in the Observer and in the SCC newspaper (delivered via Post Office mail). Enrollment is on a “first come” basis.
Even though pickleball is a fun and easy-to-learn game, it is a physical sport and requires a certain amount of movement and stamina. That being the case, please take into consideration your personal well-being before signing up. We recommend that you look at this little self-evaluation survey (shown below) to make an educated decision. You’re also invited to come to the courts behind the Community Hall on South Pebble Beach during morning club hours (7:00-11:00AM) to watch our members in action.
