Your Personal Coach
There is no escaping it. Pickleball is a fast-paced game that rewards smart choices and punishes the rest. The good news is you can increase the probability of success by having a few items up and running all the time.
The examples described below may seem familiar if you have been playing a while. Whether they are a review or revelation they need to be in your tool kit. Each can become your personal coach when it comes to sorting out why something is or is not working well for you.
The more you can prepare for an opponent's shot the better your chances for an effective response. Developing a go-to ready position means you have a consistent, comfortable, balanced foundation for your shots. Less time reacting and more time for executing your shot.
When you watch experienced partners play you can almost feel the "flow" of each point as it unfolds. That flow is built around three essential elements. Position-Placement-Patience. When something isn't working for you this is the first place to look. These aren't luxuries. They are necessities for those looking to build that solid, reliable, portable game.
