“When I took my first lesson with Dawn, she told me pickleball would change my life… well, I shook that comment off - only to find it has come true. Dawn is a highly skilled pickleball player with great knowledge of the game and an excellent teacher. Because of her, I’ve now introduced many others to the game of pickleball. I’ve brought two teams within our business to take lessons with Dawn and everyone has loved their experience! Dawn has a fantastic way of explaining and demonstrating all the different pieces and parts of the game. I would recommend Dawn to anyone (new AND experienced players) looking to learn more about pickleball and finetune their skills. Thank you, Dawn, for changing my life and many others!"
