Our Pickleball Pro
Luis Bayol knew on his first visit that he would retire in Sunriver. “We were here for a family reunion. I started my day with a morning run, then a mid-morning bike ride, kayaking and finished with playing golf,” Luis said. “Where else can you do so many activities in one day.”
The retired accountant/CPA was introduced to a new sport in 2012. “I had no clue about pickle ball even though it was invented in 1965 by two dads in Bainbridge Island in Washington,” Luis said. “I enjoy playing because it’s a fun, social yet competitive sport.”
He’s now Sunriver Pickleball Pro, having earned an IPTPA Level 2 certification as a pickle ballinstructor. He has a USAPA 5.0 tournament rating for mixed doubles and is a Team Selkirk sponsored player. Luis teaches beginners through 4.0 rated players. Bayol played tennis for many years prior to pickleball and was a Division 1 college baseball player. He has won medals at many pickle ball tournaments.
