4 Different Styles - 1 Incredible Match
With so many different styles of play it's easy to get confused. We dug into the archives from the 2019 US Open tournament to see how 4 very different players approach the game.
Represented are a repeat US Open Finalist, a former University of Michigan Men's Tennis Team player, a University of Maryland sophomore, and one of the youngest (and most experienced) US Open competitors.

Indoor Courts Opening Soon
The 3 new indoor pickleball courts are on track for opening before the end of the year. While construction is underway the WISC team is also working on membership/drop-in play options.
All the latest news from WISC, along with an opportunity to be the first to play on the new courts, will be posted here as soon as available.

Self-Check - Is Your Serve Legal?
  • The server’s arm must be moving in an upward arc at the time the ball is struck.
  • The highest point of the paddle head must not be above the highest part of the wrist (where the wrist joint bends) when it strikes the ball.
  • Contact with the ball must not be made above the waist level (Waist is defined as the navel level).
BTW....When compared to a side-arm serve (illegal) a legal service motion offers many more opportunities to adjust pace, depth, and spin. With a side-arm serve your options are limited to in/out...and getting hit with a rule violation.
Now, wasn't that simple?
