Thomas Yelloweyes, Founder & Head Pickleball 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.
