PickleballENGLAND is incredibly grateful to the IPTPA for helping us train so many IPTPA Level 1 and 2 coaches since we were formed in 2019.  Sam Basford & Rob Williams went on to become Master Teaching Professionals for IPTPA.  There are over 100 fully paid up members of the IPTPA in this country and even more that trained but decided not to keep their membership up.  

At the beginning of 2023 PbE felt it was time for us to have our own curriculum.  Something that was aligned with coaching requirements in the UK.  PbE secured Sam and Rob’s services to create the curriculum.  The pilot phase for the Club Instructor (L1) was completed in April and we are now ready to roll out across the country.  More dates will be added in the coming weeks.
