Auburn Hills Senior Services Pickleball Skills Clinic

Pickelball Skills Clinic

Presented by Auburn Hills Senior Services

Led by Lewis Forrest

Lewis Forrest, a nationally ranked top 10 pickelball player, has played on the racquetball pro-tour, has been active on the legends tour and is a pro-certified instructor and advisor for Wilson sports.

This clinic is meant to give players of all levels the information and skills needed to become a strong player no matter how long you have been playing the game. Topics will cover proper warm-up, forehand/backhand grip, balance/stance foundation, rules and regulations, proper serve and techniques, spin vs. non-spin contact, court positions, singles vs. doubles, and physical conditioning. There will be time for questions and answers and then an hour and a half for practice and play to use the information you just learned!

Dependent on weather, we may be outdoors on the tennis courts, so bring a lawn chair and the proper attire and water. Paddles will be provided for those who are new to the sport.
