Pickleball is a fun and energetic racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis! Two, three, or four players use paddles to hit a ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features with other racquet sports, including the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications.
Taught by our coastside pickleball professional, Mark Hofmann (bio below), the HMB Pickleball Academy offers newcomers to the sport an introduction to Pickleball class, skill-building and strategy classes, and an opportunity for players to learn the sport with a group of family and friends.

Classes are 75 minutes and participants need to bring tennis shoes and comfortable clothing.
Introduction to Pickleball: A single lesson designed to show you what all the excitement about this game with the silly name is about and if its for you!
Serving, Returns and Transition: Focus on serve technique, return of serve and transitioning from baseline to the “Non-Volley Zone” (AKA the “Kitchen”). Learn when to drive vs drop and how/when to move up in the court.
Drive and Drop Strategies: Focus is on recognizing what to do on the 3rd shot. Who to target, and how to properly defend the 4th shot and set you and your partner up for the 5th shot and beyond.
The Soft Game, Speedups, Volleys and Resets: As one makes progress learning this game, it becomes apparent that games/matches are won (or lost!) at the “Kitchen Line”. Focus is on developing consistency in your technique and the patience to wait for the opportunity that WILL come!
