Pickleball is similar to tennis in that it can turn on a dime when it comes to a change in momentum. That makes it imperative to maintain your focus on every point. And if you’re in control, do your best to stay that way.
I recently played a match where I employed a new strategy. Having just played for an hour, I was warmed up and feeling confident, while my opponent had only spent 10 minutes practicing dinks before our match. Recognizing this discrepancy in our pickleball warm-up routines, I consciously decided to go with an aggressive strategy, using the momentum I had built up to seize control of the game right from the outset.
The results were awesome–at least for me!
