The FASTEST way to improve your results

If you want to improve as a pickleball player, it helps to know what is important – what you should focus on. This will avoid you from exerting efforts on aspects of the game that will probably not generate the same results. In this episode of the Pickleball Therapy podcast we will give you what you need to work on (spoiler alert – it is actually the easier side of the game). Focus on this side of the ball and you will see improved results when you play.


In the riff, I will discuss whether you can improve your shot mechanics by playing – or is it practice you need?

    Loving you tips and advice! I’m new to your videos and want to find “cover the center”.

      Hi Lyn. Welcome. Since I’m not sure exactly what type of information you need for your game, I’d recommend using the search icon on the upper right side of the web page. Type in the word middle and you’ll find several different articles or videos.
