People To Know
Sports Director | Head Pro
Growing up in Woodcliff Lake NJ, Paul played many sports including baseball, soccer and basketball and is an avid surfer. He picked up Pickleball in 2017 and never looked back. The enjoyment of playing got him hooked but the strategies behind the game kept him wanting more. He loves bringing a new perspective to those he teaches and helping them bring their game to the next level.
Like Courtney, Paul has taught alongside some of the best players and instructors in the game while
teaching camps in Mexico, Costa Rica and across the US. He has spent the last 3 years as the Head
Pickleball Pro at Bonita Bay Club in Bonita Springs and helped to grow the program from 100 players to over 700 today. He has experience in developing and expanding programs, large camp and clinic
instruction, semi-private and private instruction, league team organization and training and special event planning.
Paul is excited to bring his program building experience to Riverland and help to expand the programs
for all 3 sports.
