#182- Remove Your Mental Plaque and You’ll Play Better

When a game finishes and the reaction of a player on the court is that the game sucked, sometimes its because the player who’s saying that is the losing player.

You want to spend some of your mental bandwidth protecting yourself from such potentially negative mental habits.

And in this week’s episode, we’re going to focus on looking for signs that plaque has built up in our minds and trying to remove that as we play. Because the cleaner that our minds are from this plaque that builds up, the better we’re going to play.

I’ll also share a personal story that happened to me many years ago.

Let keep it positive in terms of our understanding that it’s a game of ebbs and flows. You’re going to play great sometimes, you’re going to play crappy sometimes, and so are your opponents or your partner.

Pickleball is Messy – and that is Awesome PLUS Why Players Share “Advice”

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.
