About Us

The Art of Pickleball is the most extensive online training, playing and coaching resource available for the country’s fastest growing sport. The platform was created to help players of all levels, from beginners to seasoned experts, improve their pickleball game. 

With our seasoned pickleball coaches all offering their personal perspectives, teaching methods and areas of specialization, there are tools tailor made for you, no matter your playing style or skill level.

About the Company

The Art of Pickleball was created by the team at The Art of Coaching and a collection of the most respected, accomplished names in the sport. Founded in 2011, The Art of Coaching is the leading provider of online coaching and training resources, with in-person and virtual coaching clinics and workshops in the United States, Europe and the Middle East.  The Company is the global leader in digital coaching content, supporting nearly 100,000 subscribers worldwide.

The Art of Coaching was founded with the philosophy that there’s no such thing as the “only” way of learning, playing or coaching. This is the “Art”. We assemble expansive cadres of coaches and pros that teach the game with different styles, methods and philosophies. If you’re a better player or coach today than you were yesterday, we’ve done our job, and so have you.
