#149- Transformative Pickleball – It is a Thing and You Can Do It


A lot of times players play in a way that they don’t really understand why they’re doing what they’re doing.

Want transformation in your game – serious transformation? Then you need to understand the game you are playing. There is simply no other way.

We get told things, do this, do that, where we can’t evaluate the quality of the information we’re receiving.

How do we transform ourselves as pickleball players as opposed to simply learning a new shot or learning a new strategy? It’s a big difference between the two.

The easiest way we can talk about transforming ourselves is with an example of a shot. And this is a shot we’re all familiar with- third shot drop.

You’ll understand why you want to hit that shot because you’ll understand the framework of the game, the rules and how the course is designed, plus your objectives that make that shot the obvious choice.

In this episode I talk about how you can transform as a pickleball player and enter a phase of transformation for yourself in terms of your relationship with pickleball. Your relationship with that sport will be much deeper.

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.
