About BOOST Pickleball Intermediate Training Camps:

These camps are designed for players seeking only the highest-quality training program experience, Pickleball Central has partnered with two-time US Open Gold Medalist Steve Dawson of the World Famous Bobby Riggs Racquet and Paddle center and the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for this Indian Wells Training Camp.

The camps will be run using a program developed by Coach Dawson using his 25+ years of competitive training experience. These camps are designed for players rated 3.0-4.0 who are seeking a "play hard, compete hard, have fun" environment. All of the drills and skills are designed to translate immediately into competitive play, and each drill is based on a specific competition objective. The program is designed not only to improve your mechanics and shot techniques, it is designed to help improve your approach to game and match play - making you both a better player, and a more formidable competitor. Over three days, you will have 24 hours of available court time that includes 12 hours in thoughtfully structured clinics, playing and competing with similarly skilled players. In addition you will have access to the courts for an additional 12 hours of activities including challenge ladders, open plan, challenge the pros, exhibition matches, product demo opportunities, and more.

You should expect a lot of personalized instruction, as the instructor to student ratio is 8 to 1, and each drill is led by the Coach Dawson and his hand picked 5.0 Guest Pro & staff instructors. Space is limited to 80 participants and will use 20 dedicated pickleball courts that will be used for the Margaritaville USA Pickleball National Championships taking place November 2-10, 2019.

Our Pickleball Training Camps will focus on skill development, strategy, shot technique, practice methods, and mental preparation to improve your overall game. These programs are sponsored by PickleballTournaments.com, and administered by Pickleball Central so you can sign up with confidence. The team at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden have collaborated with Pickleball Central and PickleballTournaments.com to create the best possible program, so we guarantee your satisfaction with this training camp! You will receive world-class instruction from nationally ranked players and guest professionals, in a supportive and upbeat atmosphere.

Unique to these camps is the use of both a highly trained and experienced Head Professional Instructor along with a Proven Championship Winning Caliber Guest Pro Instructor who will share unique insights into what it takes to succeed at the highest level of the sport. The Head Pro is certified to teach this program by Steve Dawson. The Guest Pros (see which camps have which guest pros below) are hand selected by Coach Dawson and are familiar with his approach to teaching winning pickleball. The result is you will get access to an amazing amount of face-to-face time with some of the best players in the game.

5 of 5 Awesome experience!!! February 14, 2020
Reviewer: Stacey Strong from Grants Pass, OR United States  
The Boost pickleball camp was one of the most worthwhile and amazing things I have ever done! The pros were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, personable, fun, and entertaining. I received an exceptional amount of one on one instruction from almost all of the instructors. I started playing a couple of years ago, and had never had any instruction, so there were some issues I needed to fix, but they helped me fix them without scrapping my entire game and starting over, which is what I thought I was going to have to do. Steve Dawson helped me see that it wasn’t the disaster I thought it was, and that I just needed to look at it a little differently, and stop making it so difficult. With a few simple changes, I was able to completely advance my level of play. They also helped with strategies that will greatly improve a game as well. I just can’t say enough about the curriculum and pros! If there is any question in your mind if you should do this, yes you should!

Reviewer: MIKE MCCOWN from TOMBALL, TX United States  
Steve Dawson and his team executed an amazing camp at Indian Wells.  The facility, instruction and coaches were great.  After camp I was able to stay and see the National Tournament...his coaching staff was very successful.  A special thanks to Kyle Yates and Dekel Bar who helped ensure my camp was fantastic.  I can't wait to attend the advanced skills camp.
