Camp Director Markus Vorwald
Markus was a competitive junior tennis player, born in Germany, who competed all over Europe. While dealing with personal injuries, he found a passion for teaching tennis to others. During this time, he learned about the mechanics of strokes, efficient body movement and how to prevent injuries. He taught in his hometown, Fulda, and then in Munich before he moved to the U.S. When he came to California in 2016 he immediately picked up on pickleball and got certified because of its social and competitive elements. He has been teaching pickleball and tennis at the La Quinta Resort since 2016 and he's known for developing strokes in a precise way that considers his clients personal skill level. You can expect to learn the latest techniques and strategies that will bring you to the next level and enjoy this wonderful game even more.
