Get In The Game
Pickleball Director & Coach
Chico Bonner has been a high level tennis player in Orange County for over 30 years. His resume includes competing as a college player at Cal State Fullerton, and then on the pro satellite tour. Chico went on to coaching high school, college, and pro-level tennis players.
He made the transition to pickleball and has not looked back. He sees the game continuing to grow and eventually thinks it will become a collegiate sport as well as an Olympic Sport. As of 2021 Pickleball is the #1 racket/paddle sport in the USA based on growth stats.
Chico brings a lot of enthusiasm to the game and loves introducing the game to new players.
Most people who first start out playing can be playing the game within 30 minutes. The game is ideal for all ages and the social aspect is wonderful for all ages.
In December of 2020, he created the USPF (United States Pickleball Federation).
He is excited to bring USPF events to Los Cab. His most recent accomplishment in tournament play has been winning a Gold at the 2021 Newport Beach Championships 4.5/5.0 level Men’s Doubles and a Silver at the 2020 Newport Beach Winter
Open Doubles 4.5.
