#160- The Best from our Archives Part 2 – Play to your Strengths (and Work on your Weaknesses)


Maximize your advantages and minimize your disadvantages.

Then take time to work on your disadvantages during drilling and practice. The idea is to have a holistic approach to your game.

That’s what improves your chances of being successful during your game.

When you play keep in mind that there are benefits you are receiving that well exceed the score of the last game.

Maintain perspective and you will increase your enjoyment of the game.

This is a rebroadcast of our Episode 4 from way back. There is a lot going on in this episode, specific tips applicable to left handed or right handed players – use them for a holistic approach to your improvement and play.

In the riff I talk about why do you play pickupall, coming up.

I think it’s a really important when we play pickleball to take some time to think about why it is that we play pickleball and reflect a little bit on what it is that we’re looking for.

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.
