Strong Legs

Quick Tips Stacie Townsend 06-12-2023

When pro players are struggling with their game, they have been known to blame it on their “lack of legs.” In other words, to help turn their game around, they focus on using strong legs.

Engaging your legs on each shot on the court is essential for several reasons. First, it provides a strong foundation and stability, allowing you to maintain balance and control during your shots. Second, leg engagement generates power and explosiveness, enabling you to hit the pickleball with more force and accuracy. Lastly, using your legs helps with quick movement and agility, allowing you to cover the court efficiently and be prepared for the next shot. By actively involving your legs, you enhance your overall shot execution and improve your performance on the pickleball court.

Bottom line: Use your legs!
