THIRD Shot Here will win you lots of points

There are lots of free points available during a pickleball game – if you know how to get them.

In this pickleball video we show you how to take advantage of scoring opportunities so you can get those easy (and even free) points.

We take a look at the rally after the side out. To start with, James Ignatovich is going to be serving to AJ Cohler.

Having the advantage of the freeze frame lets you see how on the left side of the screen there’s some open court available.

If you want to score more free points next time you play, number one, hit your third shots towards the open space. Number two, if you get a short return or serve, move forward, take it early, and drive it towards an open space, putting pressure on your opponents and probably getting you a free point.

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.
