** Contact us directly - NOT THE PHOENICIAN RESORT **
We are not a facility nor do we have open play unless it's part of an instructional program. The facility is not open to the general public without invitation**

Andrew, the owner of Seidwinder, is the Director of Pickleball at The Phoenician, the only AAA Five-Diamond Resort in Arizona with a pickleball program. Although we can travel to you, we typically give our instruction at the resort's immaculate athletic club.  If you live in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Paradise Valley, or Arcadia and have a desire to learn how to play pickleball or improve your level of play, we would love to help. You do not need to be a resort guest. We use a positive, upbeat and fun method catered to each adult or junior player that entrusts us to give a lesson, run a clinic or organize a tournament. We always dink positive and it isn't just lip service. Seidwinder Pickleball is part of Team Selkirk (https://www.selkirk.com) #TeamSelkirk #SelkirkAdvocate #WeArePickleball. Accepting an invitation to join Team Selkirk was a no-brainer for us. Not only do they provide uncompromising quality through high performance equipment, but they also strive to improve the pickleball community as a whole. We bring their family-oriented genuine approach to all our teaching in our home of Scottsdale / Phoenix, Arizona. 

Seidwinder Pickleball donates a large portion its local fees to charity - so come out & learn from one of only professionally certified teachers in AZ at one of the finest resorts in the world. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Our Services

We provide adult private lessons, youth private lessons, adult group lessons, youth group lessons, adult clinics, youth clinics, and organize/run private tournaments. We also are a co-founder of the Arcadia Pickleball Association (APA). Pickleball is not our job, it's our passion. All lessons from Seidwinder Pickleball give part of the fee back to a local charity supporting children dealing with the loss of a parent. All activities are taught only by personable, fun and knowledgeable instructors who have reached the highest level of certification - professional with USA Pickleball. Unless otherwise specifically requested, Seidwinder's services are all located at The Phoenician Resort, the only AAA 5 Diamond Resort in Arizona with permanent pickleball courts.  

What makes us different?


Teaching and being taught a raquet sport can be dull. Seidwinder Pickleball breaks all the norms to provide an exciting introduction and/or enhancement of skills you need.


This is a passion, not a means to an end for us. We have no time for negativity. Dink Positive is our creed & we live by it. Our dinks are precise and our words are encouraging at all times.


We don't take ourselves or the sport too seriously. We have children of our own and really want to grow the sport introducing it into the junior community here in Arizona. Our instruction lends itself as a natural fit to teaching kids between 6-18. 

5-Star Service

We direct the only pickleball program in Arizona that is at a Forbes 5 Star Hotel & Resort and recognized as one of the top 500 resorts in the world. We include free bottled water, towel service and more at permanent LED-Lit courts that have an unrivaled view. 

Our Motivation

We love pickleball. 
We love to dink. 
We love our community here in Phoenix. 
Seidwinder Pickleball melds all three together providing the perfect outlet for us to teach the game we love while giving back to our community via knowledge and charitable donations that make a difference for children all over the state. 

About Us

The Seidwinder Pickleball brand was born during Covid-19 in the summer of 2020. In between helping home-school five children, Andrew's itch to formally spread the love of pickleball through this company became stronger everyday in quarantine. As of November 2020, Andrew is running the pickleball program at The Phoenician Resort, A Luxury Collection Resort, one of the only 5-Diamond resorts on the West Coast with permanent pickleball courts and athletic facilities run by one of the top management companies in the world: Troon (https://www.troon.com).
Seidwinder gives back to its community with donating some of his teaching fees to local charity supporting recently widowed fathers. Andrew not only loves to teach, but also enters the most prestigious tournaments in the Southwest. His most recent accomplishment is earning a gold medal at the 2020 35+ Arizona Open. Andrew is 1 of 20 certified instructors in Arizona reaching the highest rating "professional".  Seidwinder is a proud member of #TeamSelkirk #SelkirkAdvocate. If Andrew is playing in tournaments or teaching, you won't find him without his Selkirk paddles, gear and accessories helping take his game to "another level" (www.selkirk.com).
