Fix your Volleys into the Net with this How to Pickleball Video

Fixing a flaw in our pickleball game involves identifying the correct source of the problem.

When hitting a volley, you reach up to the ball with your paddle, and then extend the paddle forward in the direction you want the ball to go. Make sure your body is in the right position from where to execute the shot.

Three things need to work in sync to execute your shots consistently and repeatedly without making a mistake; your body (shoulder) which is the foundation, paddle swing and footwork.

If you’re hitting your volleys down to the net, first place to look will be your footwear. Make sure that you’re moving into the position to keep your shoulders level so that your paddle doesn’t get pulled down.

In this video I show you other common source of missed volleys into the net.

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.
