Know How to Decide: DROP, DRIVE or SURVIVE with Guest Coaching Professional Tyson
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.
