The primary goal of the Kawartha Lakes Pickleball Association (KLPA) is to represent and be the voice of pickleball players in the City of Kawartha Lakes (CKL).
The KLPA has and continues to facilitate the development of pickleball for all ages, skill levels and abilities in the CKL. We universally promote and advocate on behalf of of our members the recognition of pickleball as a sport in the CKL.
To do this we need your support as pickleball players and encourage you to click on the link below, which also not only supports the KLPA, but the Canadian and Provincial Pickleball Associations so they can grow the sport in partnership with KLPA.

Marty Leeking: Thank you for this opportunity to present my services to the group.
I offer 90 min session and willing to work with all levels of players who feel my experience and knowledge can be of assistance.
I prefer to work in small groups being a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8 players.
The cost of these sessions is $15 per person.
Prior to each session I start with a questionnaire to be completed by each individual player which provides me direction on what they hope to gain from my session.
At the beginning of each session, I will complete a short player evaluation and then focus on the skills that need improvement.
We will focus on technics of the forehand, backhand, 3rd shot drop, dinking, punch shot, spins, lob, foot work and court movement.
The latter part of the sessions will be spent on game play which includes coaching of the various technics worked on as well as game strategy.
I also offer coaching to pairs who would like to prepare for upcoming tournaments at the same cost.
