#169- The Pickleball is All – How Hyper Focusing on the Ball Will Help you Play Calmer … and Better Pickleball

There’s a calmness that comes from the singular focus on the ball because everything else around you becomes irrelevant.

This week, we’re going to dive into a subject to help you play better and focus when you’re out there on the court.

The topic is- Where is the Pickleball?

Everything revolves around that ball. It’s the center of our pickleball universe, if you want to think about it that way. Focusing on where the pickleball is will help us in several different ways.

Consider trying to pick up the holes on the ball to gain a better sense of what’s going on with the ball and improve your focus and calmness when you play.

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.
