#189- Avoid these 2 Baseline Traps PLUS Hybrid Pickleball is Amazing

There’s a baseline appropriate for us based on where we are right now. Why? Because the baseline is supposed to keep us in reality.

It’s meant to ground us in the modality of our situation.

A baseline is like a snapshot of your performance. You can, ofcourse, improve in the future and move your baseline with some work, a focus on your game and growth.

In this episode I’ll share with you a conversation I had with a friend of mine and why we need to compare ourselves to a baseline that’s appropriate for us as well as how to avoid the trap of being theoretical.

I share with you a particular story about the US Open Tournament Play that has to do with hybrid pickleball that was both eye-opening and exciting plus the lessons that I took away from that experience.

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.
