Hi, we’re CJ and Tony

We’ve been in your shoes before. When we started playing pickleball, quality instruction was limited. Mostly a few people who played a little better than the rest of the group and were willing to offer a little free advice, and not all of it was good.

What’s wrong with most pickleball instruction is that it focuses almost exclusively on the mechanics of the shot.

It’s great to know how to hit a shot, but if you aren’t capable of properly focusing on the shot (athletic pillar) or don’t know what shot to use when (strategic pillar), you only have one part of the equation.

That’s what prompted us to become pickleball coaches and use YouTube to spread the word. But YouTube wasn’t designed for the support you need to level up. That’s why we combined forces and created WeArePickleball.

WeArePickleball is the only immersive in-person and online learning community in pickleball. It combines step-by-step teaching videos with coaching input from CJ and Tony and a community of like-minded people, all intent on improving as players. This combination of content, direction, and support continuously available 24/7 provides an unparalleled learning experience unlike anything else in the sport.

More About CJ and Tony

Hey, I'm CJ — I’m a professional three-sport athlete and coach who has spent my entire adult life earning a living from playing and coaching sports. Since I started coaching more than three decades ago, one thing has remained the same: My commitment to see students not as they are but as what they can become and to move heaven and earth to help them realize their untapped potential. You should know that when it comes to helping pickleball players over 50 live their best lives on and off the courts, I'm an expert. Besides being a coach, I'm a personal trainer and weight management specialist. Good pickleball is not just technique; it's the mind and body working holistically. When I’m chillin', you'll find me watching Star Trek with my husband John and our two fur babies, Shirley and Ralph. (Yes, Happy Days)


Hola. My name is Tony. I’m a former tennis player – 40+ years and a Senior Pro player. But more importantly, I’m an IPTPA Certified Master Professional. I’m focused on helping players see what I see and to know the game the way I know the game. In 2016, shortly after learning pickleball, I played with my friend Tom in the Open division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning we learned just how complicated the game can be and how far we still had to go. Since then, I have been on a quest to learn everything; figure out each angle to this sport. Then to pass it down to others so they can enjoy the game and achieve the level they desire. When not thinking about or studying pickleball, I like to travel with my wife Jill, especially if it's in Matilda (our RV).
