Meet your coach
Hi, I’m Thomas Yelloweyes-a former pro Ultimate Frisbee player turned pickleball coach. I started playing sports because I was having fun, but when I started playing competitively, I realized the coaches and top players put so much pressure to win that it squeezed out the enjoyment.
Now when I coach pickleball I vow never to take the enjoyment out of the game. Even though I have over a decade of experience as a pro athlete, my greatest joy is helping everyday players advance their skills.
Our family-run business helps both everyday players and athletes master pickleball in a fun, safe environment. The difference is, our unique process incorporates proper warm-ups, strengthening, and cool-downs to prevent common injuries and maintain optimal health.
One sunny morning in Redding, California, Thomas took a walk through the park with his coffee in hand and something unusual took place.
A group of people were playing a sport that looked like tennis, but on closer inspection, he could see it was something totally different.
Thomas kept watching until one court was missing a player. He wasn’t looking for another sport to get involved in, but he put down his coffee and picked up a paddle. He won his first game only a few hours later and he was hooked.
Today, he is both IPTPA and PPR certified with well over 250 clinics and hundreds of lessons under his belt. He loves helping new and intermediate pickleball players improve their skills while having fun on the court.
With over 15 years in the fitness industry as a trainer and 13 years as a competitive pro athlete, Thomas Yelloweyes knows how to teach pro-level techniques to everyday players.
His goal is to positively impact lives through pickleball and make people laugh (at least once) on the court!
