A professional player coach, Morgan Evans is a pickleball pioneer. In 2017, he became the first Professional Tour Pickleball Coach in history, working with elite players like Tyson McGuffin and Simone Jardim.
As a commentator for the game's premier tour, the PPA, Morgan was the analyst for Pickleball’s network television debut in 2022 on CBS.
Morgan doesn't just coach, he practices what he preaches; he became a pro player in 2016 and has been a top doubles player ever since. Evans was the inventor of the spin serve that later became popularized by Zane Navratil before becoming illegal in 2023.
He continues to play a crucial role in growing pickleball into what it is today, serving on the competition committee for Major League Pickleball, as well as the GM and Coach of the Arizona Drive.
Morgan specializes in private lessons, where he can take a shot that you're struggling with, break it down to its fundamental parts, and rebuild it from a weakness of your game to a strength.

"I love seeing the change in the players games from when we watch them play in the beginning to when they learn the different skills and put it to use at the end of the clinic. They look like different players in such a short amount of time at the end of the clinic. I love to show all my lessons the higher level strategy that they will see as they get to the 4.0 plus levels. Since I’ve been through it myself I know what it takes to adapt to each level."
Joel has played as high as the professional level for the past 3 years and has been teaching and giving lessons part time for the past 2 years.
