Many players, especially those new to the sport, are asking where they can take pickleball lessons in SF.  While we cannot endorse or recommend any organization or coach offering lessons below, here are some options for those interested in some formal training.

  • Lifetime Activities offers organized adult classes with weekly sessions at Goldman Tennis Center.   Please call GTC for information or visit their website https://www.lifetimeactivities.com/san-francisco/    Most Fall classes are full, but they can put you on a waiting list.  Lifetime recently hired some good local pickleball instructors to teach their classes.
  • Local teaching instructors.  Check out our list on our website.  Contact these folks on your own. https://pickleballsf.com/local-pickleball-instructors-coaches/
  • Presidio Wall volunteers are very good about hosting “newbie” trainings on one court during regular scheduled “drop-in” session hours.  This Fall, a regular TU 10:30 AM intro class is being held every week by Mel Mashman through October.  Just show up.
  • City College offers a non-credit Beginning Pickleball class.  You play on the tennis courts at the Ocean Ave. campus.  Please see their Fall catalog for enrollment information.
