Mentoring 

Following a COVID haitus, we are pleased to once  again offer regular mentoring sessions and occasionally provide specialized or advanced training, such as tournament readiness. 

Mentoring is intended for:

  • beginners who have previously attended the beginner's lesson or have a bit of play experience, 
  • 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 level players seeking to advance their level of play.


Mentoring Sessions Indoor Season Outdoor Season
 When  Check the calendar to be sure, but usually on Fridays. First session is 6:00 to 7:30 pm, and the second session (typically for higher levels of play) is 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Please arrive only 5 minutes before your confirmed registration start time. Check the calendar to be sure, but usually on the Wednesday after the second Sunday in a month. Once per month. 6 to 8 pm.
Where Typically, Bertha Kennedy School gym.  Typically, Alpine courts.
Cost One sticker - members only. Note that stickers will not be sold at the event and are not available from anyone else at the event. Please buy yours in advance via this website.  See the "Store" under the Member's menu. No charge
How to spot on calendar Look for events titled "Mentoring" on the Introductory Lessons and Training calendar. Always double-check the calendar before leaving for the session in case there is a last-minute cancellation of the session.
How to register Email training@pickleballstalbert.ca. Specify "Mentoring" in the subject line and provide your full name and the date of the session you would like to attend. You will receive a reply either confirming your registration and specifying your session time or advising the event is full.

To ensure sufficient play time for attendees, there is a limit to the number that can and will be accommodated at any mentoring session. Only those with a confirmed registration will be allowed to participate. 

Attendance To enhance COVID safety and limit the number of contacts, mentoring sessions are now limited to members only. Members may attend as many mentoring sessions as they would like however, if demand is high, priority will go to those who have not previously attended a mentoring session.
Purpose and activities

For beginners: to re-enforce learning from the beginner's lesson and to help learn the rules and the basics of the game.

For all attendees: to improve your game by developing your skills and learning strategies of play.

Players are divided into skill levels and, for the first hour, practice skills suited to their level. Players then play games and obtain play-improvement tips from trainers.

Don't hesitate to let the trainers know what you would like to work on. We have great volunteers who dedicate their time to help you, and love to see players working on their skills.
