See the Big Picture of Pickleball (Avoid Frustration)

A lot of our frustration when we are trying to improve stems from not seeing the big picture.


Pickleball is deceiving. It is a “simple” game .You just go out there and bat the ball around. Right?


What you are seeing is the portion of the iceberg that is above the water line. Most of pickleball (its big picture) lays underneath the waves. And this is what frustrates us. We should get it – we know there is something we are missing. But we just cannot see it.


We want to show you the big part of the iceberg. Help you see the big picture of the game. Once you start to see the game, you will be able to put it all together.


PLUS, I talk to you about your improvement. Is it achievable? My thoughts in the riff.

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.
