The Nanaimo Pickleball Club is proud to announce that our long time club members, Anna Edgar and Pete Korvin have just received their second and highest professional coaching designation, “Pro Certified”, from the Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR).
This designation makes them the only coaches in B.C. with this accreditation. The PPR is the official education and certification partner of the USAPA.
Take a look: Steve Paranto & Spencer Laurent show you the drop serve and some new serves you can add to your game.
There are some rule changes coming in 2021 and the document has come out earlier than expected. Some key changes to note:
1. No more lets. A serve that hits the tape and lands in the correct service box is now live and must be played.
2. Drop serves allowed. Serves may be hit after the ball bounces and with no restrictions on the nature of the swing.
3. Asking about positions. Serving teams can now ask both whether they are the correct server and in correct position.
