Quail Creek pickleball players welcome Helle Sparre, the first professional female instructor to teach at Quail Creek. Helle was the national champion at the USAPA nationals this past November and is a very sought-after instructor. She lives in Mesa, Arizona. She offered a small group lesson and gave a seminar on doubles strategy called dynamite doubles that was open to all Quail Creek members.
