WOW! Now that was an amazing trip.. Work Trip..

Updated: Jul 21, 2023

When people hear that I travel and teach Pickleball the response is almost always the same. It goes something like this.. "Wow your life must be real tough (with a laugh) or "Man you are spoiled" "How lucky are you to do what you love and travel". All expected responses and partially very true. However, there are several caveats. Here's what the schedule looked like in Miami

Sunday arrive in Miami at 9:00 PM (it was my daughters birthday that day so I had to take last flight possible to get into Miami.

Head back to hotel to pack, grab quick lunch and hit the airport.

Its the 2nd beach location in two months that neither Dave or I have made it to the beach. But we love it, not because of the location, it's because of the the people we meet, the frienships we build. We have students come to one clinic and standby and waitlist for one to two more after. We have built relationships with wonderful people that are at a variety of play levels with this sport, but what we all have in common is how much we love it! We taught almost 250 people those 2.5 days and I am pretty sure not a single person walked off that court without wanting to come right back.

SO yes it's work, physically for sure and mentally as well. We put a lot of pre-work in behind the scenes before we even show up to the court. But, it's definitely worth it and has brought me so much happiness and joy. Thank you to all the students for your kind words and positive feedback, you all have been a blessing to me.
