Step into the world of Dave Tobin, a man who turned his pandemic pastime into a passionate pursuit in pickleball. His journey is unique, his skills diverse, and his love for teaching unparalleled.
The Pandemic Pivot: From Sports Buff to Pickleball Enthusiast
Dave’s pickleball adventure began in May 2020, a silver lining during the pandemic lockdown. Thanks to his brother-in-law, what started as a pastime quickly became a passion. But pickleball isn’t Dave’s first dance with sports; it’s the latest in a long line of athletic endeavors.
Dave isn’t just a pickleball player; he’s a veritable jack-of-all-sports. From volleyball to soccer, high school hoops to baseball, and from swimming to racquetball, tennis, and ping pong, Dave has done it all. This rich tapestry of sports experience informs his unique approach to pickleball.
With a 25-year tenure in volleyball coaching, Dave’s love for teaching is evident. He thrives on the energy of eager learners, those who share his enthusiasm for the game. His teaching philosophy? It’s all about the joy of participation and improvement, something he shares with his wife, a fellow educator.
Dave is not your typical sports fan; he’d much rather be in the game than watching it. His philosophy is simple yet profound: “There’s no ‘I’ in team, but there is one in ‘win’.” This reflects his individual drive and commitment to team success, a perfect blend for the pickleball court.
More Than Just a Game
For Dave, pickleball is more than a sport; it’s a platform for teaching, connecting, and enjoying life. His sessions are not just about learning the game but about embracing its spirit and the camaraderie it brings.
