#143- Are You Committed to Improving Your Pickleball Game? PLUS Becoming a Pickleball Therapist

Are you committed to your improvement? The idea of commitment is saying to yourself, number one, I would like to get more out of this sport.

You need to commit to something. Then make sure you put in the work and pay the attention and the focus that you need in order to go from where you are to where you want to be.

Lock in a commitment and work on it for whatever time it takes.

Consider adding some practice to your world. It does not have to be three hours or so,  you can practice for 10 minutes before you start playing and that’ll generate results.

It’ll definitely give you more production than zero minutes of practice or drilling or focused attention on something at any point in time.

In this episode I outline various methods you can commit to improvement and really applying yourself to what you want to do.

04:38- Understanding the Process of Learning Pickleball and Finding the Right Resources to Improve

09:22- Empowering Players Through Systematic Pickleball Coaching

17:16- Into the Riff


In the RIFF, I’m going to talk to you about an interesting concept I’m thinking about for Pickleball therapy.

You’re the therapist because you’re the one that needs to actually apply it to yourself. So you’re your own therapist out there on the Pickleball court.

If you haven’t registered yet for the summit, please make sure you register. The registration is free, we’re dealing with pros and experts from all over the world and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

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.
