Keep Your Head Still

Quick Tips Stacie Townsend 10-30-2023

Keeping your head still in pickleball is a fundamental tip for improved balance, control, and consistency in your shots. By fixing your gaze on the pickleball and avoiding excessive head movement, you maintain better stability and focus. This steadiness also enhances your shot accuracy, as better balance leads to better shots, as your paddle follows your visual target more effectively.

So, work on keeping your head still when playing. This small adjustment can lead to more precise shots, reduced errors, and an overall improvement in your game.
