"I have worked with Michael Messier in group lessons with 8, 4 and 2 people. No matter the size, he is able to bring individual attention and love of the game. What I really like about Michael is that he is even-keeled and very positive. His involvement enhances the enjoyment and effectiveness of the experience."
Helene Andersen Michel
My pickleball journey began with an invitation to try a new game/hobby/addiction. After watching a few matches, I gave it a try and was very discouraged with how little control I had over anything. Each time I stepped on the court, I dreaded missing a serve, failing to return a ball and preventing my partner from enjoying the match.
Michael Messier’s instruction corrected my serve and gave me the shots, skills and tools to be successful and have fun. He quickly spotted the errors in form and provided me with a technique that worked. I no longer fear being someone’s partner and instead have a great time playing and meeting new people. Thank you Michael for your patience, kindness and guidance.
Thank you, Michael, for the Pickleball lessons. I am a person who has never played a sport in my entire life and at my age, I decided to try Pickleball. You made me feel comfortable during the lessons when I was doing something totally outside my usual realm. I was able to pick up the fundamental skills to begin to enjoy this new sport. Your calm demeanor and positive reinforcement were exceptional.
My girlfriend and I took a one on one coaching lesson with Michael for two hours, time went by so fast, I wish I had a couple more hours. It was great! He helped us in areas where we needed improvement. He had multiple drills with good tips and we learned so many skills. The next time I played I tried to focus on one of them and I will try to incorporate them all as weeks go on. I really enjoyed this lesson. Thank you Michael!
A lesson with Michael is an opportunity to take pause on the fun game of pickleball to greatly benefit your game. The lessons help you to recognize what skills are working for you on the court, how to better utilize them strategically, and to identify where you can gain additional skills to enhance your game!
His drills are easily transferred to improving play on the court, his eye for identifying where you need to improve is right on, and his kind and encouraging demeanor makes the time spent with him a comfortable learning environment and a real pleasure. I walked away from my lesson with many aspects to focus on and a new found energy for the game! Now that I have applied many of the coached skills, I can't wait to schedule another session with him to keep the pace of improving on the court and loving the game.
Thanks Michael - truly a wonderful and worthwhile experience!
I recently decided to learn the game of pickleball and was fortunate enough to discover Spin Pickleball’s website. I reached out via the website’s “Contact Us” page and I received a response the same day.
Within a few days, I had my first lesson with Michael and I couldn’t wait to schedule more. Michael is extremely organized and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable on the court and very patiently worked on drills to help me develop my skills. In addition, he spent time teaching me strategy, proper court positioning along with the rules of the game.
After taking a few private lessons, Michael connected me with a group of three that needed a fourth. How lucky for me! I have had so much fun with the new group while improving my game at the same time. Michael’s process of using creative drills to learn new skills followed by coached game play helps put what he teaches into play. Whether you are taking individual lessons or a group lesson, you will not be disappointed.
