#165- 3-Phase Pickleball: Preparation, Play, and Process PLUS Handling Advice

Approaching your pickleball experience comes in three phases, each one with its own purpose, and each one helping you get the most out of your day.

The first one is pre-play which is the phase before you step out onto the court. This phase pays dividends when you actually get out there as you hit the ball.

There’s a couple of concepts that are really helpful on the first phase and one involves visualizing how you want your day to go. This helps your brain to know exactly what it is that you want to get to do when you’re out on the court.

The second phase is while you’re playing the game and in this podcast episode I explain to you two things you can do while you’re playing in this phase.

The last phase is after you play the games where you switch your lens then build your next steps.

In the riff, I’m going to continue the conversation from last week about why players give advice.

We got a lot of feedback from that episode and today we’re going to switch to the other side on how to deal with advice coming your way.

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.
