Every few months PPP will put out several new drills & strategies to improve your pickleball game. It is so important to remember, that "we play like we practice!" So take your time, review the drills and strategies below and get out there and practice!!
You have read on these web pages and seen on our Facebook page: we play like we practice! Many of the premier pickleball players and coaches will tell you that their ratio of practice to play time is 3 hours to 1 hour at a minimum. Practice does not have to be mundane or boring or lacking in a great work out. Simone Jardim, one the top female pickleball players in the world gives us her three favorite drills that should challenge each of us and provide us with some skills to improve our game.
One of the common complaints on the court that is heard throughout the universe is, no not getting upset with the "bangers" but rather how do I handle or deal with lobbers!! The older we get, the more difficult both hitting and especially getting to a lob is. So, let us again go to one of the masters and see how Simone hits a lob, returns and lob and even hits the overhead back at their opponent!
Find a buddy, get a partner and head to the court to work on these and other drills to improve your game!!
