Rich Thul Bio: 
Coaching Experience: I have completed the IPTPA level II Pickleball Coaching Certification as well as a 15 hour pickleball strategy clinic in San Diego. I am also a level II NCCP coach in baseball, lacrosse and hockey.
I regularly compete in tournaments and am committed to improving my game, both from a coaching perspective and a player’s perspective.

What I offer: I particularly enjoy coaching pickleball doubles strategy at the 3.0 and 3.5 levels. For players interested in lessons emphasizing strategy, or if you are preparing for a tournament, I offer a 6 hour lesson where I teach the strategic fundamentals using the IPTPA approach of “net to base line”, emphasizing the soft game strategy.
