Want to become an advanced player?

So you want to become an advanced pickleball player? Let’s go!


First and foremost, thank you so much for signing up to my email list. I really appreciate it. As I said in the welcome email, I take having someone’s email very seriously. It’s an enormous responsibility in my opinion. And considering that I now have that responsibility with your email, I’m going to repay you in kind.

Here’s how all of this is going to work. Over the next 6 weeks, I will be sending you 6 emails that are crafted specifically for the intermediate player. Each week will represent 1 of the top 6 concepts or skill sets that you have to understand in order to get into advanced pickleball play.

They will arrive in your inbox at 8 am CST every Monday morning for the next 6 weeks. The first one will arrive this following Monday morning. Until then, I’ve got plenty of content for you to consume which is all linked below.

Remember, you can unsubscribe at any time using the link at the bottom of any email I send you.

It’s time to launch


It can be really hard to find high quality specifically tailored for intermediate pickleball players. A lot of the content out there seems to be aimed more towards beginners or advanced players.

We’ll get into the most important concepts with the emails that will be coming your way soon. Feel free to bookmark this page and come back to it whenever you want! Enjoy!
