New Player Lessons

Never touched a Pickleball paddle before? Don't know the rules? Scared to just "hop in" and start playing with a group? Don't have a paddle? That's fine too, we have "loaner" paddles from Baddle Pickleball that you can use. Sign up for one of our new player lessons & bring a friend (or 7) and learn the rules, strategies,  how to hit the ball, serve, dink, and all the basics from one of Sawyer Point's wonderful Ambassadors. Every player was "new" at one point, so you have nothing to be worried about! ------------------------------------------------------------ FREE for the public ALWAYS. New Players can sign up for an available lesson below. There are a limited number of spots available and are based on first come, first served basis. ------------------------------------------------------------ New Player Lessons will conclude at the end of October and be back in Spring 2023.

Ball Machine

**For MEMBERS ONLY. Learn about becoming a member here.

Need to work on your dinking game? Maybe your third shot drop is not "dropping" how it should. Whatever part of your pickleball game needs work, the high-tech ball machine will throw many different looks at you. In a sport like pickleball, where repetition & consistency are so important we think that our members would greatly benefit from using the ball machine. -------------------- ***For insurance liability purposes, the ball machine can only be rented by MEMBERS of Pickleball at Sawyer Point. Learn more about becoming a member under the "Membership" tab.
