Grace Kang is excited to partner with Colee to continue to build The Farm’s pickleball program. Grace is a designated PPR Certified Pickleball Instructor, and has experience teaching private lessons, group lessons, and clinics.
Her eclectic mix of talents brings a fresh teaching perspective to the courts, with over 25 years of teaching experience.
