Classes for 2018 are filling fast!


We have developed an introductory class for new players. The goal of these classes is to give you a basic understanding of the game, provide you with the skills necessary to play and get you on the courts quickly. The classes are free and we provide all the necessary pickleball equipment.

The first two training sessions are held at the Chota Gym on select Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The third session is held at the Wellness Center Courts the following Wednesday from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Our volunteer instructors will teach you the rules, basic shots and strategies. Since each session builds the previous one, it is important that you attend all sessions. At the end of class, we will assign you to one of our group levels based on your skills. At that point, you can join our club, and start playing as often as you wish!

Once you have completed your class, there is optional additional training available to all our club members, usually on Thursday evenings.

If you have any questions, please email the TVPBC Training Director here: MAIL TRAINING DIRECTOR

NOTE: As per the Recreation Dept. rules, our classes are only open to Tellico Village Property owners or residents and you must be a member of the Recreation Dept. or pay the daily fee.
