Up Your Pickleball Game! Cornerstone Wealth Management

Pickleball can be a great way to stay active while in retirement. Whether you’re an active player or you’re new to the game, this article is for you. This comprehensive review delves into three strategies, each tackling a unique aspect of pickleball.

 

1. The Importance of Communication in Pickleball Doubles Matches

In pickleball doubles, you’ll find that successful collaboration hinges on effective communication with your partner. Here are some pointers to facilitate better communication:

  1. Prior to starting the match, take time to discuss your play styles and preferences. Do you favor a more aggressive stance near the Non-Volley Zone line or lean towards strategic movement in response to the game flow? Understanding each other’s strengths and weaknesses can help you formulate a winning strategy.
  2. Use verbal signals like stating “mine!” to indicate your intent to take a shot, particularly when the ball lands between you two. This approach helps avoid any ambiguity about who should take the shot.[1]

 

2. Dominating the Kitchen Line in Pickleball

Placing yourself near the kitchen line is a key tactical move in pickleball, allowing you to capitalize on scoring opportunities. Here are a few essential tips:

  1. As you move closer to your opponents, the game speed escalates. So, always stay alert!
  2. By positioning yourselves at the kitchen line, you establish a visual blockade that can unnerve your opponents and aid in setting up offensive shots.

Although standing near the kitchen line has its benefits, it does carry risks. The ball returns faster, making it vital to maintain proper form and steer clear of faults.[1]

 

3. Mastering the Dink Shot in Pickleball

Perfecting the dink shot can be a powerful tool for controlling the pace and strategy of the game. Here’s how to execute it effectively:

  1. Stand near the kitchen line and aim to send the ball over the net with a low trajectory, landing it in your opponent’s kitchen area. A proper dink shot will bounce in the kitchen, forcing your opponent to wait for the bounce before they can attack.
  2. Make sure your dinks are low to the net to prevent your opponent from smashing it back.[1]
