What do you observe as the hardest habit to change when a tennis player starts learning how to play Pickleball?
There are a ton of tennis players coming into pickleball which is a great background sport for the game. However many tennis players just simply hit the ball too hard, take too much of a backswing the problems with that have to do with the generally rudimentary equipment and the tiny court on the court is only 22 feet on the other side of the net which is pretty tough to keep the ball in play. Combine that with the fact that the pickle ball, doesn't bounce very high, so often We're hitting a ball 8, 10 15 inches off the ground, which means you have to hit up over the net and add to that. We're playing with her. Generally you know, not very sophisticated paddle especially compared to a tennis racket with strings, felt on the ball and all those things. So it's difficult to impart enough spin to hit the ball, hard and have that spin. Keep the ball in play. So my recommendation with tennis players is to take negligible minimal backs. Wing and really embrace the soft game with a finesse elements of the sport. Thanks for asking the question, Wendy. I'll see you on the courts.
