With an outstanding background as a Senior Pro and instructor, Scott brings both his passion and his expertise to the court, helping you to believe & achieve your pickleball goals! 


In 1971, Scott Tingley was born in Clearwater, Florida. It is here that he began his love for tennis back in 1981 at the age of 10.  Playing with players from all over the country he ranked for the first time nationally at the age of 14. 


As the years went on, life began to happen and the racquets got dusty until he found the incredible sport of Pickleball in January 2012.  Scott’s passion for this sport grew so quickly that before he knew it, he was investing as many as 15+ hours per week and loving every second of it.  He was quickly playing with players that were national champions.


Over the years he has enjoyed teaching and coaching in many different sports.  He has been working as a private Pickleball coach in the Sarasota County area and has done group clinics around the U.S. His abilities and teaching techniques help students feel comfortable on the court and has earned him the privilege of serving as a Certifier at the Training/Testing Center for new instructors with The International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association.  It is Scott’s passion to assist students as well as instructors to sharpen their own abilities to achieve what they need to take their passion to the next level.


Scott looks forward to bringing his skill and passion for Pickleball to students of all ages.
