The Serve.

April 28th, 2017 | Posted by: Huntsville Pickleball
  • When serving the ball, look where you want the ball to go.
  • Then, lower your chin  and  serve.
  • Keep your chin lowered and do not look where the ball is going until you hear the popping sound of the ball hitting your paddle.
  • you raise your chin, your arm will go high and the ball will also go high.
