Pickleball is like a chess match. The pickleball game is more about finesse and less about “banging”.
It takes patience to learn to dink and patience to win the dink.

Safety Suggestions:

Do not hold a ball in your hand when playing. It is a distraction for your opponent, a safety hazard if dropped during play, and a hindrance to the player holding the ball.

For better balance wear a court shoe not a running shoe or walking shoe when playing.

When a ball goes onto another court please state “ball on court”, not just “ball”.

  • 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.
  • If you raise your chin, your arm will go high and the ball will also go high.
