#174- HELP – My Partner is Being Targeted. What Can I Do? The answers are here

We received an email from a Pickleball Therapist which is the topic of our discussion in this episode.

How do we deal with certain situations in open play when you’re playing in an imbalanced situation and your partner is getting targeted?

There’s a couple of things you can do as you put yourself there and protect a player.

Number one- Avoid targeting yourself when you’re in these situations and then make it harder for your opponents to target your partner.

You want to make sure that both players get to play. Be supportive of your partner and hit shots to places that makes it harder for your partner to be targeted.

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.
