Advanced Tournament tennis gave Roberta skills which later transferred into Pickleball in 2011. At the 4.5 level, she won 3 Silver medals at the Canadian Nationals in 2013 & 2014. Roberta quickly advanced to 5.0 after winning back to back Gold's at Canadian Nationals in 2015 & 2016.

Roberta is a NCCP Pickleball Certified Instructor and a member of Pickleball Coaching International. She is a highly experienced and sought after teacher of 10+ years throughout the Okanagan Valley from Osoyoos to Vernon. She enjoys introducing the game to Beginners but also specializes in working with Intermediate to Advanced level players in Private and Semi-Private lessons, which she has been running successfully in West Kelowna. She was previously a Classical Ballet instructor for 20 years and uses her keen eye for movement detail in her instructing/coaching work. She created a program in 2020 called Drills and Play to help all players advance in level as well as running group Clinics at her recreation centres in Peachland, West Kelowna and Penticton.

Roberta is looking forward to helping the PKC membership at the Intermediate to Advanced levels in Private or Semi-Private lessons. Lets work on your game, correct bad habits or get you into tournament shape! While not teaching pickleball you can find Roberta at Pickleball Depot in Kelowna helping players find equipment to suit their needs.
