#171- You are Your Best Pickleball Gift – Understand and Embrace It

You can develop an amazing pickleball game and relationship with this game, regardless of what your background, age or history is.

You are a capable human being, on and off the pickleball court!

While it’s important to understand what you bring to the table, your background is not going to limit you in terms of your forward progress.

How can we be free to walk forward with ourself as pickleball players? Understand the framework of pickleball is going to be the same whether you are senior pro player, top player or a beginner. We all play the same game- same court, same net, paddles, rules etc.

What changes? The strategies and shots that we use based on our unique set of circumstances, that’s what makes us a unique being.

Recognize who you are and everything about you. Embrace that. Don’t fight it.

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.
