Once again Villages Pickleball Club is having their yearly Pickleball Pro Exhibition where top players are invited to teach and show off their skills. This year’s Pro Exhibition starts March 28th and there will be three, two hour long sessions: 8:30 – 10:30am , 11 – 1:00 pm and 1:30 – 3:30pm. The event is being held at The Villages in Florida.  A few tickets are still available for $12 and you can contact Jeff Shank for all the details at  JLSHANK@HOTMAIL.COM.

I asked Jeff why he created this Pickleball Pro Exhibition a few years ago and he replied “We started the event to make it easy and economical for our locals to witness the best pickleball play in the world.”  Sounds like a special treat for the locals, and in fact, the last two years attendance was capped at 450 tickets, the participants’ experience and lessons remained up-close and personal.

This years players include:

Wes Gabrielsen, Timothy Nelson, Brian Staub, Matt Staub, Phil Bagley, Chris Miller, Kyle Yates and Robert Elliot

Jennifer Lucore. Stephanie Lane, Jodi Elliot, Lydia Willis, Deb Harrison, Denise Boutin, Diane Boch, and Rachael Kroog.

If you are in that area and would love to get close up viewing and hands on teaching from top pickleball players then be at The Villages, FL!  Again, contact Jeff Shank directly for tickets and details…  More fun times on the pickleball court, hope to see you there!
