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. 

LKNPA 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. 

LKNPA members need to login prior to registering to receive member discount. If you are not a member, but would like to join to receive clinic discounts and other benefits, please click the Join tab above 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 the very important skill of dinking.  This often neglected aspect of the game is the difference between recreational pickleball and competitive pickleball.  Attendees will learn why dinking is so important, when to dink, how to dink, and will be given drills they can use to get better.

    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! For only $15, you can 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”, 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 and Academy Sports in Mooresville have 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. 

    If the courts are too wet at 4pm the day of the clinic, I will send an email out and the clinic will be postponed to the next week. Hope it doesn’t rain.

    Interested in improving your pickleball skills while beating the heat?? Join us for an early morning clinic that is sure to elevate your game. These early morning clinics will be limited to a small group of 4 - 8 players for an hour of focused skill-building.

    This clinic will focus on stacking strategy and poaching.  Participants will learn how to stack with both lefty and righty partners and take advantage of the best forehand strategy in the middle of the court. Participants will also learn when and how to poach and catch opponents off guard and ending points quickly.  These two strategies are game-changers and will position you for more winning point and overall success.

    This clinic will consist of instructor-led drilling focusing on cross-court dinking, drop shots, speed-ups, serves and returns.  Instructors will demonstrate proper technique, explain drills, and provide real-time coaching to fix any mechanical flaws.

    This is the perfect clinic for players who are committed to drilling and practicing to improve their game.  Participants will leave the clinic with an understanding of how to structure their own drilling sessions so they can continue to invest in their game.

    This clinic will focus on what most people consider the most important shot in pickleball and that is the 3rd shot.  Executed by the serving team, this shot really sets the tome for how a point will be played out.  This clinic will focus on whether you should drive or drop your third shot and how to execute each shot.

    There's a time to drive and a time to drop.  Register for this clinic to prepare yourself for this important shot.
