Pickleball Teaching Professional Association
(IPTPA) certified
instructor, providing information or requested instruction for players
of all skill levels.

“I’m excited that ONE CLUB made such an incredible investment for this

will offer free open play and clinics led by McDonald, along with access
to full food and beverage service at the resort’s restaurant and
entertainment venue Bar 45.
