2019 Pickleball Stay N Play
North Carolina Pickleball
Pickleball Stay N Play – Florida
Stay and Play is a very popular option now with recent trips to Punta Cana, Arizona, Hilton Head and now Florida. Yesterday I had and opportunity to take a private lesson with IPTPA instructor Scott Tingley at the Lakewood Ranch Country Club near Sarasota Florida. Scott is a great friend and instructor and I picked up a few points on how to improve my game. There are many camps and opportunities to STAY N PLAY and I would recommend that you give it a “shot” if you have not mixed pickleball and travel.
In Scott’s very first tournament, he placed 4th playing at a 4.0 level with only 9 months experience. This first tournament only fueled his fire and, since then, has played in numerous tournaments every year with over 40+ medals, including Silver Medal 5.0 45+ Singles and Bronze Medal 5.0 40+ Men’s Doubles at the 2016 US Open in Naples, FL.
Over the years, he has enjoyed teaching and coaching in many different sports. He has most recently been working as a private Pickleball coach in the Punta Gorda area and has done group clinics around the US. His abilities and teaching techniques help students feel comfortable on the court and has earned him the privilege of serving as an IPTPA Certifier for Instructors. It is Scott’s passion to assist students as well as instructors to sharpen their own abilities to achieve what they need to take their passion to the next level.
Scott lives in Venice with his wife Deborah and kids Ryan and Meaghan.
