3 Key Skills You Need – Beat the Banger, Control Playing, and Optimal Serve-Return Strategy

Want to beat the bangers more easily, make less errors when you are playing pickleball, and employ proper pickleball strategy? Then these 3 actionable tips are for you.

In this pickleball video, you will learn how to win more pickleball points by letting out balls go and not hitting them, how to keep from rushing around the court (with the errors that result), and how to differentiate between serve and return of serve (these are vastly different activities with very different strategies).

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.
