About Johnny

Hi my name is Johnny! I’m a fun, local Valley Center pickleball coach with over 3 years of playing experience and over 1 year of teaching experience. I’m a USPTA Certified Tennis Professional with over 12 years of playing experience & over 10 years of teaching experience.

Please click here to view my coach page!

My family first got me into playing pickleball and I really enjoyed it! I played a few tournaments after getting serious with playing advance challenger court. I then took a few online courses on how to instruct others and taught a few of my tennis clients, family members & now have decided to teach anyone wanting/needing pickleball lessons!

I am offering fun private pickleball lessons, semi-private pickleball lessons and group pickleball lessons 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 am happy to help you with wherever you are in your pickleball journey!

I teach tennis lessons at Castle Creek Pickleball Club (Escondido), Robert Adam’s Community Park (Valley Center), Brengle Terrace Park (Vista), Kit Carson Park (Escondido) and Poinsettia Park (Carlsbad) but will travel up to 20 miles to a pickleball court that is near 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 at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to the opportunity to be your Valley Center pickleball coach on the court!

"I really enjoy my lessons with Johnny. He showed me how to use the proper form near the kitchen when hitting a volley and controlling it. He provides me with really good drills throughout our lessons!"
