Consider throwing up a lob like Frazier did in the video above . This shot can catch your opponents off guard and put you and your partner on the offensive by pushing your opponents deep into the court. However, be wary of this shot if your opponents are not at the Kitchen line or if the pickleball is too close to the net (as you may not have enough space to execute the lob effectively).
