#12- Mental and Emotional Training with Dr. Peter Scales
This is part 3 of our interview with Coach Pete about mental and emotional training. Some heady stuff in there. In this part of the interview, Coach Pete and I discuss getting out of a mental hole, using timeouts and other techniques to get to neutral, and a healthier framework.
Compete – Learn – Honor. A different way to think about playing pickleball might be just what the doctor ordered to shift your mindset and give you a measure of calm and confidence while on the court.
Dr. Peter Scales is a psychologist who has spent a considerable amount of time studying and thinking about the mental and emotional wellbeing of athletes. We are fortunate to be able to share his ample knowledge with you.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
