Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to providing an entertaining, safe and supportive environment for our students. We truly want our students to have as much fun as possible while developing their game. It is our core belief that life is lived better with healthy doses of play. Recess doesn't have to end once you're an adult! Pickleball is our happy place, and we want our students to feel right at home there, too. Let's PLAY!

Who We Are

Positive Dinking is the teaching duo of best "dinking buddies" Mo Nard and Reine Steel. We always work as a team – not only to offer our students different perspectives and strengths, but because it's more fun! We both have a passion for playing and teaching pickleball, and love watching our students grow. Together we've helped hundreds of students improve their game.

Maureen "Mo" Nard is one of the top women players in the area. She is a former racquetball pro who taught locally and as far away as Japan. As a racquetball player she earned two national titles. Pickleball is her new passion. She competes regularly in tournaments, including the 2018 USAPA National Championships. She is the current California Indoor Mixed Doubles 4.0 Champion. You might recognize Mo from her stand up comedy and improv days – don't be surprised if you find yourself laughing while learning!

A true student of the game, Reine Steel quickly developed from novice to advanced player. She has competed in tournaments throughout the state, earning gold medals in 4.0 doubles and singles. She has been actively involved in many aspects of the pickleball community for the past three years, including volunteering on local club boards, running tournaments and events, and advising for new facilities. Reine is also the creator of the PlayTime Scheduler website used daily by over 1,400 local players and thousands more across the country.
