So here he is…..

Lately, there’s been a rumor among our pickleball folks that Indian Ridge has a new Pickleball Director. Now it’s been confirmed that he arrives in two weeks, on November 17, and his name is Noe (“Noah”) Sariban, otherwise known as the “Pickleball Doctor.” He has a go-to web site ( and Facebook pages (The Pickleball Doctor) that relate his pro-level play, teaching experience and, most impressive, physical training and therapy credentials. He’ll begin beginner/intermediate/advanced player clinics on Tuesday, November 17, and we can expect a big following (so sign up at the Fitness Center ASAP!).

So, let’s welcome Noe and congratulate Randy Berg and Club management for bringing him in to direct our pickleball program to even greater success. Just have a look at his intriguing bio and positive look below to imagine how far IRCC’s pickleball can go.
