#193- The PPA, Hardwiring, and Finger on the Paddle

In this triple episode we address three different areas; things in the PPA that merits some conversation, hard wiring concept and, in the RIFF, we talk about putting your finger on the paddle.

1. On the PPA experience, I was watching two matches and I observed how flaws in the mental game spill over into your physical performance, shot making, execution, your thinking and ultimately decision making. There are good examples from those matches that I share with you in this episode.

It’s very important not to lose sight of the mental side of the game to feel better and play better.

2. The second area we discuss is that we’re subject to an exchange of inputs and outputs through our processing systems; our minds and our bodies. That’s handwiring and we can’t change that, but there are few steps I’ll share with you that you can take to help your conscious mind overcome subconscious feeling while you’re playing.

In the RIFF

I’m going to talk about putting your finger on the paddle, this is in response to a question that was asked recently by one of our system members.

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.
