For these sessions, we are pleased to partner with Jorge as our play lead and coach.
Jorge comes to pickleball with a squash background, where he managed to achieve some of the top rankings in Canada and around the world as a Junior player.
Jorge was a double Gold Medalist at the Pan-American Junior Championships in Mexico. He also placed in the top 4 in big world tournaments such as the US Junior Open and the Scottish Junior Open. Jorge competed in squash all his Junior years and coached the provincial squash team that won gold at the provincial games.
Not long ago Jorge was introduced to pickleball by his former squash sponsor and instantly got hooked into the sport. He started training and competing in pickleball and has had great achievement in the past 3 years. Jorge has won multiple gold medals in sanctioned tournaments in the highest level of pickleball, Level 5.0, in both Men’s doubles and Mixed doubles. He’s also a Gold Medalist in singles at level 4.5. Jorge is also a World Ambassador for the International Federation of Pickleball.
Jorge has helped with pickleball clinics and training programs in some cities around Canada and is currently training some high level local players. Jorge loves coaching and instructing and has had 15 years experience doing this from his former sport. He also developed his own training program to get people to move up a level.
Jorge believes that a good pickleball player is able to deliver all shots accurately, have a strong defense, be offensive when presented with an opportunity and be mentally strong, and that’s where he wants to get you.
