The Steamboat Tennis and Pickleball Center (STPC) coaches have visited local schools for years, bringing tennis and pickleball to our local kids. The coaches play fun games that are centered around simple shots over the net. The kids love it! They can start hitting the ball in an effective way almost immediately, and they get so excited to see their shots land in the court!
Although the pandemic has stopped us from visiting the schools recently, the STPC will be back in schools ASAP. For now, pickleball coach Marcy Pummill has been visiting the Steamboat Boys and Girls Club weekly, playing fun pickleball games with the kids. In the video, she is playing ‘Jail’: a popular tennis and pickleball game. It’s a definite favorite, especially at summer camp!
