•       unless otherwise indicated, all clinics are the same.  The clinic is very “interactive”, with a real emphasis on the fundamentals.  In addition, the “proper way” to play (technically and tactically) is stressed.  You will be shown a variety of skills and techniques to improve your play, and perhaps just as important, to learn more about “the game”.

•       unless otherwise indicated, all clinics are open to all Pickleball Nova Scotia members and all skill levels (inc. beginners).  Participants will be grouped by skill level, on different courts.

•       Both Brooke Siver and Mike Seifert will be instructing at every clinic.  So you will get 2 IPTPA certified instructors mixing among all participants.

•       there will be a maximum of 4 per court.  Therefore, if 4 courts are available, registration will be stopped at 16.  For a “3 court clinic”, registration will be capped at 12.

•       you can register for any clinic by sending your name and the mobile number you can be reached at via text along with your preferred clinic date and time to Mike Seifert at

•       The cost for attending a clinic is $30 for the 2.5 hour session.

•       If there is enough demand, we will arrange an informal evening of “Pickleball Talks” and pizza on Wednesday evening (19th) from 18:30 – 21:00.  There would be a “meet and greet” and then Brooke will give a talk: “Pickleball in Canada: The Past, The Present, The Future”.  After that, there will be a Q&A session.  Tickets would be $10 with pizza, $5 without.  If you are interested in attending, email Mike Seifert –

•       Anyone interested in private lessons with Brooke can contact Mike Seifert at  Rates are based on a $40 per person per group of 4 “formula” for a 2 hour lesson.  That said, any “arrangement” can be handled by Brooke, depending on when and where the lesson may need to take place.
For further information:

  1. visit the Pickleball Nova Scotia website for daily updates.
  2. another “broadcast” email may be sent out next week, if required.
  3. text “alerts” to clinic participants, only if required (i.e. weather).
  4. contact Mike Seifert at for additional information

  1. I would love to attend the women’s skill and training session if possible. I haven’t played PB before but I have played badminton, table tennis and tennis and I am in pretty good shape so I was wondering if I could attend at least to observe if nothing else?
