Getting Started Introduction to Pickleball- Video 1
While pickleball is a safe sport, you are moving quickly on a hard surface like these courts out here. So there’s a chance for falling.
C. J and I share with you tips that will help you minimize the chance of the falling, as well as importantly, protect your legs and your feet.
We’re going to talk to you about several things in this video and in subsequent videos and as well as our beginner series, our Getting Started series that we have for you. Everything’s in there.
One of the first things that you need to make sure that you do is that you are wearing the correct shoes – one that’s designed for pickleball. If you don’t have a pickleball specific shoe, a court shoe would be fine. Basketball, tennis, volleyball, any of those types of shoes would be sufficient.
Familiarize yourselves with the type of movement that we have on the pickleball court. You don’t want to move quickly from one direction over to the other direction without that little rebalance because you could have a trip and fall.
Also ensure the paddle is not too heavy for your arm.
Our Getting Started series program is designed to get you started on the right foot. Get your free beginner guide and complete beginner video class by visiting Better Pickleball.com/beginners
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.
