Basically, what I’m looking for, for instance, on the third shot is what type of ball did my opponent give me. If it’s a slower ball that sits up a little bit higher in my strike zone, then that’s the ball I’m going to go ahead and drive.
If it’s a lower ball that’s easily manageable for myself, then that’s the ball I’m looking to hit my drop.

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.
