Pickleball Anticipate Out Balls

Try to anticipate when your opponents are about to hit an out of bound balls. Know when to expect an out of bounds ball before your opponents even touch the ball.

Things to take into consideration when anticipating an out ball from your opponent.

 

        1. Is the wind at your opponent’s back?
        2. Is your opponent swinging real fast at the ball and is his contact point below net?
        3. Is your opponent making a difficult shot on the full gallop?
        4. Is he a very inconsistent player?
        5. Is it a very hard and low percentage shot for you to try and return? If so let it go. It may go out.
        6. Keep an ear open for yell of "no" from your partner when he thinks the ball is out.

Hitting your opponents out balls builds confidence in your opponents and a good player will make an adjustment after realizing he has just hit an out ball. You will probably lose future points without him being penalized for hitting an out ball.

If you should play someone who always tries to hit everything, even your out balls then hit at that person much faster than you normally would. You have nothing to lose.

Be aware of where you are on the court at all times. This will help you to decide whether to hit or not to hit a ball.

If you stop hitting your opponents out balls your percentage of wins will rise immediately.
