** Free Parking: Plenty of free parking is located at the front of the centre. Pickleball will be held at basketball courts no. 4 and no.5 of the Boroondara Sports Complex basketball stadium centre.

** IMPORTANT: "You Can Not Practice Soft AND Expect To Play Hard." **

Pickleball FUN Community (PFC) & Boroondara Sports Complex (BSC) TOURNAMENT DRILLS & MATCH PLAY Session offers 3 indoor Pickleball Courts, with all equipment including a variety of demo paddles (Joola, Hustle, Ronbus & Obelisk) to try out for Intermediate Advance to Advance Players during your 3-hour Pickleball FUN session.

** VERY IMPORTANT: "The best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile." ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi **

Within your 3-hour session, you will have a 1-hour session (normally at the start) which is run mainly by Jay McLean, a current Masters Pro Player and certified Level 2 - Advance Pickleball Coach. Our coaching will cater to both tournament DOUBLES as well as SINGLES strategies and drills. We laser focus on the "WHW" SCOREBOARD = WHY, HOW & WHERE for each major DRILLS Mastery and drill sheets will be provided for each type of drill.

You will also be partnering with several players during match play with live tournament strategies and feedback on areas of the game that you can improve on. As we have several Level 1 Pickleball Coaches on hand, they will provide that feedback as your matches are being played, when either you are playing against them or the coaches are watching you play. These strategies feedback will look at your current shot creation, body positioning, court awareness, patterns and various pickleball strategies used or not used, including sharing potential pickleball defence to offence patterns.

** This level of detail is very rarely provided and if you are looking to truly improve dramatically with your Pickleball game, then this is a must-attend session for you!!

Here's some sharing from our Pickleball FUN Community Superstars...

"The session focussed on the short game - holding the line as Jay put it which has been a bit of a mystery to me until now. Working on specific strokes with tips on how to use them effectively was enlightening. With some time to practice this was a great session. I’m looking forward to the next one for more secrets to become a better player. Thanks Jay" ~ Helen M.

"The session was terrific and so much fun. We all have been challenged regardless of our pickleball journey. Jay is such a passionate, dedicated and caring person and coach. Everything is always thought thoroughly which gives us a purpose and makes us play more intentionally. Thank you!" ~ Mimi P.

"What a wonderfully ran pickleball session Jay, thank you! Such a professional approach and well-organised and orchestrated running of the session left me impressed. Your personalized touch and sense of humour is refreshing and much appreciated ." ~ Geoff F.

"Love this new format as it allows me to really get a chance to warm up and develop my game. Jay’s unique approach with ongoing tips, to the different drills at each court, is something I haven’t experienced in Pickleball and it really allows me to develop my game. The match play in the second half of the session also made me rethink how I approach and strategise my shots in a real game situation. Great session and a great idea Jay, I will be here weekly for sure! Thank you 👍
" ~ Anthony A.

"The drills session is very beneficial, Jay has considered match play strategies and has incorporated that into the drill session for the benefit of the players. A well organised and a well run event." ~ Haydren Y.

"Another very fun and challenging session, the combination of drills AND gameplay is an excellent way for anyone to improve their skills and make the most of their pickleball journey!" ~ Charlton L.

"I really enjoyed the session tonight. Learning more about when to attack and defend from Jay really helped. His sessions are always fun and his knowledge of the game is amazing." ~ Paul C.



When playing Pickleball, as with any sport and physical activity, there is always a risk of injury. Therefore, we all must take responsibility for our safety and take the necessary precautions to prevent injuries.

👍 To ensure that everyone is having awesome fun and staying safe with the game, we would like to remind all members of the following safety measures during each pickleball coaching and social session:

✅ 1. DO PROPER WARM-UP ACTIVATION EXERCISES BEFORE YOUR SESSION: Warm-up activation exercises are very important to prepare your key muscles for the game and prevent injuries. NOTE: We have a list of activation exercises designed for pickleball which you can get from the session host.

✅ 2. PLAY WITHING YOUR LIMITS: Do not push yourself beyond your limits. Know your capabilities and play accordingly.

✅ 3. DRINK CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT YOUR SESSION: Staying hydrated is important to prevent cramps and other injuries.

✅ 4. BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS: Always look out for other players, spectators, and potential hazards on and near the court.

✅ 5. WEAR PROPER INDOOR COURT SHOES: This will provide adequate support, grip and again prevent any unnecessary injuries.

✅ 6. DO NOT PEDAL BACKWARDS TO RETRIEVE BALLS: Avoid running backwards to retrieve balls as this can cause injuries. Instead, turn around and run forward to retrieve the ball.

✅ 7. LET SOME CHALLENGING SHOTS GO: It's certainly okay to give up a point to avoid injury.

By following these 7 key safety measures, we can all have fun playing pickleball safely and reduce the risk of injuries. 🤗 We all must look out for each other and create a safe and fun environment for everyone. 🥰
