About Brian


Hello my name is Brian and I’m a fun, local St. Petersburg pickleball coach with over 4 years of playing experience and over 2 years of teaching experience! I am also a PPR Certified Pickleball Professional and PTR Certified Tennis Professional with over 25 years of playing experience and over 3 years of teaching experience. I’m the founder of Sunshine City Tennis LLC which is located in St. Petersburg, FL. I played high school as well as collegiate tennis and I continue to play competitively in adult recreational leagues in the Tampa Bay area.

Please click here to view my coach page!

I am offering fun private pickleball lessons, semi-private pickleball lessons, group pickleball lessons and hitting only sessions for all ages (kids, teens, adults, seniors) and for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So whether you need to work on some specifics like your forehand, backhand, volley, serve, service return, overhead, drop shot (dink), approach shot, footwork, singles strategy or doubles strategy-I would be happy to help you with your game!

I teach pickleball lessons in the St. Petersburg area at Fossil Park (St. Petersburg) and Shipwatch Yacht & Tennis Club (Largo) but I will also travel up to 15 miles to a pickleball court conveniently close to you.

Please contact me through my coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, we’ll set-up your first pickleball lesson or hitting session at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and to the opportunity to be your St. Petersburg pickleball coach on the court!

St. Petersburg Pickleball Coach Brian


“If you want to learn how to play pickleball or want to improve your game, I highly recommend signing up for lessons with Brian. It was my first time ever playing pickleball and I had a private lesson with Brian who made the experience extra fun, enjoyable and not intimidating. It’s safe to say, pickleball is my new favorite way to exercise and sport to play!”
