Learn the pros’ strategy when they play pickleball | PLUS injury prevention – make it a regular part of your life

There is some suggestion that pickleball is becoming a hard game. The pros are hitting harder, attacking more often. But is that really the case?

In this week’s podcast we explain why the soft game is ALWAYS the right answer to the game. It is the approach to the game used by the pros when the stakes are highest. Yet it is a strategy that any player can use, regardless of background, size, age, etc.

Adopting the soft game can radically alter your game.

In the riff, we discuss minimizing injuries – on and off the court – in 2022.

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.
