During Tournaments we put ourselves to the test.

Tournament play is not the same as regular local play. Nerves are different. Competition is more focused. Strategies need to be spot on.

It's a test to see how well we navigate a game when facing other players determined to give their all against us.


Our success in a tournament comes down to three areas:


  1. How well we can execute the shots during the match. (the Mechanical Pillar) 
  2. Our ability to deploy strategies that give us the best chance for success. (the Strategic Pillar) 
  3. How our body and mind are able to perform in a competitive tournament setting. (the Athletic Pillar) 


While the groundwork for your success has been laid over the last several months or even years, it's the unique nuances of tournament-specific strategies that can propel you to success. In this LIVE CLASS, we'll delve into these critical areas, handing you the keys to unlock YOUR competitive edge.

Pre-Tournament Readiness: Prepare to Perform

Understand the essential steps to effective pre-tournament preparation. We'll guide you through proven strategies to optimize both your physical readiness and mental sharpness so you hit the court feeling great and brimming with confidence.

Game Time Adjustments: Adapt and Overcome

Discover how to stay agile and responsive, making real-time adjustments that can turn the tide of the match. Learn how to judge when to 'play by the book' or 'step outside the box.'  Understand how to identify threats and opportunities to stay a step ahead.

Mindset Matters: The right mental approach

Learn to harness the power of your mindset to overcome tournament jitters and play your best. Discover how to keep your nerves in check and maintain a focused and positive mindset to perform under pressure and transform your tournament experience.

In a close match, the edge you will gain can make the difference between winning and losing.

This is what keeps me doing what we do...helping pickleball players all over strengthen their relationship with this amazing sport. I've been called a master strategist and impactful pickleball content creator. And, yes, I've produced numerous videos for the In2Pickle YouTube channel, am the host of the one-of-a-kind Pickleball Therapy podcast, and I even wrote a book, "Play Pickleball." But what most allows me to confidently stand before you as Your Pickleball Coach comes from years of work and dedication to this profession, including achieving the highest pickleball coaching certification available: Master Teaching Professional and Director with the International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association.
