“Don’t Shark the Dolphins” teaches you tips and techniques with easy-to-understand terminology to help you improve your game. On court lessons are extended off the court with the P3 Pickleball Lifestyle, a philosophy taught through inspirational stories and perspectives on how we should consider carrying ourselves throughout our daily life.

Pickleball, as defined by the USA Pickleball Association is “a court sport played on a badminton-sized court with the net set to a height of 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball similar to a whiffle ball and composite or wooden paddles about twice the size of ping-pong paddles. It can be played indoors or outdoors and is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. In addition, the game has developed a passionate following due to its friendly, social nature, and its multi-generational appeal.”
