Head Pickleball Pro PTR, PPR
Josh is originally from Pittsburgh, PA where he grew up playing competitive tennis from the age of 11. He then attended Penn State and worked for the Women’s tennis team for nearly three years.
After graduating from Penn State, Josh moved to Hilton Head Island where he coached at the renowned Van der Meer Tennis Academy traveling with junior players to tournaments all over the south. During his time in Hilton Head, Josh discovered the game of pickleball and was intrigued by the unique sport and the opportunities it presented from a social and competitive aspect for players of all ages. In 2019 Josh moved to the Eastern Shore to teach tennis at Sea Colony and in early 2020 travelled back to Hilton Head where he became a certified pickleball pro by the Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR).
This summer, Josh looks forward to growing the sport of pickleball at Sea Colony and is excited to work with brand new players all the way up to seasoned tournament veterans. From private lessons, to open play, to tournaments and special events, Josh knows that pickleball at Sea Colony will have an option for everyone to get in on the fun!
