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 three-time US Open Gold Medalist Steve Dawson of the World Famous Bobby Riggs Racket and Paddle center.

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 15 hours of thoughtfully structured clinics, playing and competing with similarly skilled players.

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 40 participants and will use 10 dedicated outdoor pickleball courts.

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 Bobby Riggs Racket & Paddle has 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 Learned so much October 1, 2019
Reviewer: David Jamriska from LAKE FOREST, CA United States  
My first ever pickleball camp, signed up my wife for her birthday and I tagged along.  Been playing for about 9 months.  I'm looking forward to trying these new skills out against my unlucky opponents.  Pros were fantastic and very approachable, much more than expected.  We are already planning on signing up for a partner program.

5 of 5 Boost Pickleball Camp September 30, 2019
Reviewer: MS from Seal Beach, CA United States  
Some of the best spent money on a sport ever!  The instructors were knowledable, good teachers and a whole lot of fun.  The drills were great and the progression of the camp was spot on.  The skills learned were only part of the camp, the strategy learned had an immediated impact on my game.  if there was one criticism i may have is that it would have been helpful to match players with like skills at the beginning of the camp.  Highly recommended!!

5 of 5 BOOST Camp Exceed Expectations September 30, 2019
Reviewer: Karen from Seattle, WA United States  
I attended the BOOST camp in San Diego. I'm a 4.0 player & enjoy regular rec & tournament play. I was a bit concerned whether there would be similar level players & things to work on that would be new to me. Those concerns were quickly put to rest once camp began. There was a nice mix of skill levels & Steve Dawson & his amazing team of guest pros (Irina Tereschenko, Chris Miller, Brett Noel & Belinda Zbinden) have a great system for leveling the courts so that all players are in the right spot working at the level they need. The pros were so good at demonstrating drills & shots & they worked very well together. It was great having them circulate through the courts to give all players individual feedback & tips. The curriculum was fantastic, covering so many aspects of technique & strategy, with lots of well thought out & well presented drills. I was amazed at how much we covered in 3 days. Plus it was tons of fun. I came away feeling like it helped my game immensely.
