#192- You need the Erne in your life … right? – PLUS 250,000 downloads thanks to you

The journey to be a more, well-rounded player can be faced with distractions that pull you in different directions, that are not as productive as others, the erne being a good example.

When you watch the erne in action in pro matches, you’ll find that the erne is of very limited strategic value.

The erne is exciting when it happens, but more often than not, players attempting it are simply caught out of position with their partner having to cover the whole court.

Now, what’s an erne? In this episode I explain to you what that is, why it’s not an effective shot and unless you’re super excited about it, I would suggest putting it on pause and really think about it, again.

Because winning in pickleball comes from the basics, non-sexy stuff as well as doing it better and better than you have before.

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.
