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.
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”.
