Woodbridge Pickleball Club Visits River Ridge and Westminster
Woodbridge Pickleball Club President Nick Katsarelis and fellow PPR Certified Pickleball Coach Jason Shriner visited River Ridge and Westminster to teach introduction to pickleball and skills and drills clinics to approximately 24 pickleballers. Nick introduced pickleball to about 12 brand new and beginner players while Jason helped advanced beginners refine their soft game focusing on dinks and drop shots. Thank you to club member Sheila for connecting us and for the River Ridge and Westminster communities for hosting us!

Woodbridge Pickleball Club at Stonebridge’s Fall Festival
The Woodbridge Pickleball Club was well-represented at Stonebridge’s Fall Festival! From 11am-4:30pm, at least two dozen club members staffed the booth, played demo games, ran mini-intro-to-pickleball lessons, and built excitement around pickleball in Prince William County.
Directly behind the booth, the club set up a temporary court allowing festival-goers to grab a paddle and try dinking or even a full game! It’s amazing how some folks who have never played pickleball can so quickly pick up on the game and play some intense rallies. They’re absolutely hooked so look forward to seeing them on the courts soon!
Thank you to our many volunteers who spent their Saturday promoting the sport of pickleball!
Club Members Teach Prince William County School Gym Teachers About Pickleball
The Woodbridge Pickleball Club was recently invited to participate in the physical education teachers’ staff development day at Gar-Field Senior High School. Over 25 club members volunteered up to 3 hours of their time to run pickleball stations on skills and games such as How to Serve, Dingles, and Four Square.
Each session was one-hour in length and began with a welcome from WPC board member Carroll Williams, Woodbridge USAP ambassador Barbara Tyrrell, WPC board president Nick Katsarelis, and local pickleball pro Jay ‘Gizmo’ Hall.
Several hundred gym teachers learned more about pickleball and how to include pickleball as part of their curriculum. Woodbridge Pickleball Club members are available to assist PWCS teachers when introducing pickleball to their students. Please use the Contact Us form to request assistance.
