Ready for the Next Pickleball Shot? | The Definitive Ready Position Guide

Not many things create more angst in pickleball players than the ready position. Where am I supposed to hold the paddle? Did I lose that rally because my paddle was not ready?

In this video we show you the pickleball ready position, give you the options (all of them) – including an option that you probably have not heard before, and give you our recommendation for your best ready position.

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.
