Cornelius Pickleball Programs

Lake Norman Pickleball Association is excited to partner with Cornelius Parks and Recreation to provide educational clinics. We will be offering clinics in multi-week series that will build on different skills each week. We will also be offering one-day clinics targeted to one specific skill. Clinics will be based on skill level. Signing up for the correct skill level helps both you and the instructional group get the most from the lesson. Please see the current clinic offerings below. 

LNPA does not want financial hardship to be a barrier to participation. We offer a scholarship program for those that meet qualifying criteria. If you feel you may qualify, email Dave Mancuso (dave.lknpickleball@gmail.com) for more information.

    Looking for an alternative activity for lunchtime? Why not get outside and improve your pickleball skills? These midday clinics will be limited to a small group of four players for an hour of focused skill building. 

    This clinic will focus on functioning as a better team in doubles play.

    Please join the Lake Norman Pickleball Association (LKNPA) as we welcome those interested in learning about the fastest growing sport in the country that has a weird name but is loads of fun… PICKLEBALL! Come see why everyone is talking and enjoying this sport that is enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. People aged 4-100 are taking over courts throughout the nation, meeting new people and getting some exercise while doing so! 


    The LKNPA is proud to host a beginners only, “Introduction to PICKLEBALL”, typically on the first Sunday of every month starting at 5pm at the TORRENCE CHAPEL PARK COURTS. The first hour being spent learning all about the sport, paddle, court, ball and why everyone is loving and talking about pickleball! Time will be spent introducing the basic shots, rules and game play. Then at 6pm, the fun continues when the courts open up to other beginners that already know the basic rules of the game. 

    Please try and bring your own paddle. Dick’s Sporting Goods in Birkdale Village has a healthy selection of paddles and there is always Amazon. You might already be wondering… “which paddle is for you?” Do not stress over that until you get a good grasp of the game and then you will understand what you want in a paddle.
