More about Michael :

“I took Pickleball 201 with Mike last year and gained a lot from his clinics. I liked the variety of drills he provided and he always geared instruction to the level of the players in the class. He is very encouraging and was so pleasant to work with. I thoroughly enjoyed my class with Mike.”
