The great golfer Payne Stewart once said, “A bad attitude is worse than a bad swing.” This also holds true in doubles pickleball. If you have a bad attitude or bad energy on the pickleball court, that will likely have more of a negative effect on your performance, your partner’s performance, and the overall outcome, as compared to bad shots or mistakes from time to time. So, reek of positivity. It’s infectious for both your own game and your partner’s game. If you or your partner make a bad shot, build yourself and your partner up so you are mentally ready to win the next shot.
