Avoid Injury on the Pickleball Court and Play Longer – A How To with Fish

The quickest way to be forced from the pickleball court is through injury.

In this video veteran player Fish and I go over a common source of injury: too much movement on the court.

You’ll want to maintain a calm body as you hit the ball without having to move extra.

Make sure that you’re balancing yourself, coming out of the cross step before you move in a different direction.

Fish advises players out there who may be taking it too seriously or aren’t really enjoying the game that the game is all about fun, exercise, and meeting people that you enjoy and have fun with.

Don’t take this game so seriously that you get mad about a point. If you’re arguing about a line call, you’re doing the wrong thing. Don’t get upset, because stress is a bad thing for you.

Really interesting video that you’ll want to watch till the end and avoid injury while playing out there.

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.
