Engage is delighted to announce Michelle Esquivel as one of Engage Signature Pro Players and lead instructors at the Engage Precision Pickleball Camps.
Michelle is a current top Pro Player who brings enthusiasm, energy and motivation to Engage’s Team.
Esquivel has been an up and coming Professional Pickleball player medaling in Nationals and The US Open. She was just named Most Valuable Player at the Pickleball Global Challenge - East vs West Championships where she helped lead her team to victory.
Originally from Southern California, Esquivel comes from an extensive tennis background playing and coaching at the collegiate level and teaching Physical Education for over 15 years. She holds a Masters Degree in Physical Education from Azusa Pacific University as well as a BA in Exercise Sports Science with an emphasis in teaching and coaching from Concordia University Irvine.
Pickleball found Michelle four years ago during the height of her tennis teaching career and has since chosen to pursue it full time as an IPTPA instructor and Professional Player.
Her passion for teaching Pickleball radiates as she is genuine on the court. Michelle’s sense of caring for her students makes working with her a pleasant experience for all who are eager to learn. Her excitement when seeing students progress is contagious.
One of her greatest strengths as a teacher is working with the ability each individual has instead of forcing them to play in any one specific way.
Having worked with such a broad spectrum of students, Michelle is able to understand what can be done given their age and ability level.
We could not be any more excited to name Michelle Esquivel as one of our Signature Pro Players.
