I have taken several lessons with Dan, and appreciate his insight, and passion for the game. He has been VERY helpful, in integrating my skill as a top ranked tennis player, to develop my understanding of the pickleball game.

I took a fantastic lesson today from Dan Jenkins.  Not only is he a great player, but he’s also an awesome instructor! His explanations and instructions were easy to follow and things began to click as to how and why the strokes are performed the way they are–always seeking to achieve maximum effectiveness.  I highly recommend Dan for lessons–for players at any level of play.  Great experience!
