Cliff Drysdale Tennis at The Ritz-Carlton Santa Barbara


I'm so excited! My book is out for all pickleball players out there!
365 Days of Inspired Pickleball is a guide to becoming a better player and one who is compassionate on and off the court. Each day entry includes pickleball tips from the experts and inspirational quotes. The book tries to encompass all the amazing aspects of this game we love so much.
I’ve been playing PB for 3 years now, and I thought I had a pretty decent understanding of the game, but within 30 pages of Meganne’s book, I discovered 10 new tips that I can’t wait to try out.
I also appreciate how Meganne integrated mindfulness practices into her advice. I’ve spent my life competing. This time I want my pickleball time to be about joy and compassion. Oh…and sometimes winning.
-Kenny Loggins, singer, songwriter
Read this book and it will make you a better player... guaranteed!
