Avoid These Three Common Pickleball Mistakes – Applies to All

3 common pickleball mistakes that affect all players but are particularly applicable to tennis players who are now adding pickleball to their repertoire (or changing completely over).

We’re gonna cover three game-changing areas:

Volley Technique: You need to be aware of the classic tennis-to-pickleball mistakes, especially when it comes to the volley.

Court Size & Out Balls: Ever think about the difference in court sizes? Well, we did! We’ll show you how to adjust your instincts and make wiser choices when the ball comes at you. Hello, smaller court!

The Tennis Mindset on a Pickleball Court: Pickleball is not mini-tennis. Hitting hard might work at the onset, but it’s not a strategy for long-term growth.

So if you’re a tennis player itching to rock at pickleball or just adding it to your weekly schedule, these tips will keep you from making typical transition mistakes.

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.
