Is pickleball for you? Come and find out. The LWV Pickleball Club offers an "Introduction to Pickleball" session with no Club membership required. The session takes place at the indoor courts in the mini-gym in Clubhouse 1 (adjoining the Fitness Center). Sessions are limited to 8 players, and you must register for a slot via the CALENDAR on this website. Email with any questions. NOTE: Because Clubhouse 1 is closed for renovation, this class is offered on the outdoor courts (Gate 12) until September 2024.

In this single group lesson sponsored by the Club, you will learn the basic strokes and good technique.  Coach Allan Galera (714-552-2119) also offers private lessons (see the court noticeboards for details).
