How to Practice Pickleball
Find someone of your ability that appreciates the importance of practicing.
If you want to play your best, you must know the importance of practice, as well as playing the game.
A player should learn proper footwork to become a better player. Learn to cross step, side step and split step. Good footwork makes for easier court coverage, wider range, and better balance and shots.
You must practice a soft game at the net until you are so confident that you think that you could do it perfect for five minutes if needed.
Break the game down into segments.
Ground strokes, corner to corner and down the line.
Volleys: One player at the net and the other at the baseline. Volley balls hit from different angles. Both players volley and practice short game.
One player lobs the ball to player at net who hits overhead shots from different angles. Play points out using one-half doubles court. Go from corner to corner, not keeping score without serving and then with serving. Points should not be counted because a player tends to try to win by doing only the things that he does well, rather than practicing things he doesn’t do well.
After practicing for a long period of time, play a singles match using only half of the doubles court and keeping score. Try to move your opponent around the court and out of position with ball placement and the other strategies presented earlier.
After practicing the whole game in segments, the game becomes an extension of practice and you play better Pickle Ball.
