Despite Pickleball being one of the fastest growing sports in the country, I feel very fortunate to have been playing this incredible game for 25+ years! I first learned Pickleball in 1994 when it was introduced as part of our PE curriculum at Dover-Sherborn Regional High School. As a tennis player, I had an immediate affinity for the game and played with friends every chance I could! Fast-forward 23 years and, after years of working in the Education and Parks/Recreation fields, I was able to combine my passions for teaching/instruction and Pickleball into one! I currently teach classes and provide private individual and group lessons for towns and clients all over Eastern Massachusetts.

As an Instructor/Coach, I strive to create a fun, loose, and engaging atmosphere on court for all of my classes, and I truly love helping participants learn the game! From first-timers to experienced racquet players, everyone will have a blast on the court!

For advanced beginner/intermediate players who already know how to play and score, but may not feel comfortable joining an open-play social group!

Eric Kevorkian
Despite Pickleball being one of the fastest growing sports in the country, I feel very fortunate to have been playing this incredible game for 25+ years! I first learned Pickleball in 1994 when it was introduced as part of our PE curriculum at Dover-Sherborn Regional High School. As a tennis player, I had an immediate affinity for the game and played with friends every chance I could! Fast-forward 23 years and, after years of working in the Education and Parks/Recreation fields, I was able to combine my passions for teaching/instruction and Pickleball into one! I currently teach classes and provide private individual and group lessons for towns and clients all over Eastern Massachusetts.

As an Instructor/Coach, I strive to create a fun, loose, and engaging atmosphere on court for all of my classes, and I truly love helping participants learn the game! From first-timers to experienced racquet players, everyone will have a blast on the court!

Eric Kevorkian
Despite Pickleball being one of the fastest growing sports in the country, I feel very fortunate to have been playing this incredible game for 25+ years! I first learned Pickleball in 1994 when it was introduced as part of our PE curriculum at Dover-Sherborn Regional High School. As a tennis player, I had an immediate affinity for the game and played with friends every chance I could! Fast-forward 23 years and, after years of working in the Education and Parks/Recreation fields, I was able to combine my passions for teaching/instruction and Pickleball into one! I currently teach classes and provide private individual and group lessons for towns and clients all over Eastern Massachusetts.

As an Instructor/Coach, I strive to create a fun, loose, and engaging atmosphere on court for all of my classes, and I truly love helping participants learn the game! From first-timers to experienced racquet players, everyone will have a blast on the court!
