Sponsored by PickleballTournaments.com, PickleballCentral is now offering camps via a number of elite, trusted training centers for those who want to completely transform their game over the course of 3 days.

The first is to take place June 29 - July 1 at the Bobby Riggs Tennis & Pickleball Center in San Diego, CA. There are coaches, workshops and classes for pickleball players of every experience level, but these camps are intended to provide some of the best training available worldwide.

Personalized Instruction from Top Athletes

Whether you're a recreational or competitive 3.0 player or above, you'll find incredible value at a reasonable price. Space is limited to 40 participants with an 8:1 ratio of students to instructors, ensuring everyone gets plenty of hands-on coaching and personalized attention. Not only that, but every drill and lesson is directed by some of the most renowned picklers in the circuit, so that players will retain the high-level skills being taught.

The initial camp is led by pickleball pro and Bobby Riggs co-owner, Steve Dawson. Coach Dawson began his athletic career in collegiate tennis, becoming a two-time Big-8 Champion at the University of Oklahoma. Afterwards, he discovered the joys of pickleball and went on to become a two-time US OPEN Pro Gold Medalist, Huntsman World Champion, Canadian National Champion and multi-time USAPA Nationals Medalist.

Coach Dawson has over 25 years of coaching experience and will be leading drills with the help of the incredible Bobby Riggs staff. This includes Jennifer Dawson, four-time US Open Gold Medalist, Lon Krantz, finalist at the Huntsman Senior Games, and Callan Dawson, PPF Champion.

In addition, each camp will be attended by a traveling guest instructor to provide their unique insights into the game. National Champion Irina Tereshenko will be the first to arrive, followed by Chris Miller (July 27 - 29) and Larry Moon (Sept 14 - 16).

High-End Facilities and Location

The Bobby Riggs facility also deserves praise in itself. With first-rate accommodations, you'll enjoy locker rooms, showers, an on-site restaurant and pro shop. In whatever downtime you can spare, you'll be free to explore one of SoCal's most popular vacation spots.

Local attractions include SeaWorld, Balboa Park, LEGOLAND and many stunning beaches to wander at sunset. San Diego's incredible cuisine is also on full display, with a variety of local eateries providing flavorful Cali-Baja offerings.

Comprehensive Itinerary

Each 3-day camp is designed to help players develop skills that will be of use during real-world play. You'll not only develop muscle memory by drilling and improving your mechanics, but strengthen your mental approach to pickleball so that you can better read each and every scenario on the court.

The camps include over 15 hours of instruction with optional open play time, spread over clinics and competition between players of a similar skill level.

To see a complete breakdown of the itinerary, please visit PickleballCentral's Training Camp listing. To summarize, however—players will be guided through everything from body positioning to dinking, shot placement, defending slams, 3rd-shot drops, types of serves, lobs, pre-game preparation and much more.



Don't miss out on these incredible opportunities to be taught by some of the best pickleball pros around. These 3-day training camps can be purchased for only $495 at PickleballCentral.com and are sure to provide participants with skills that translate into immediate improvements.

Later in the year, we'll also be providing a camp at Seattle-based Pickleball Station from Oct 5 - 7th, so if you're looking to visit the beautiful Pacific Northwest or want to take a look at which instructors will be visiting (hint: Coach Dawson will be traveling up the coast so you don't miss out on his expertise, along with US Open and Nationals gold medalist Glen Peterson), then now's the time to reserve your spot.
