Watch The Ball Intently

Quick Tips Stacie Townsend 06-13-2022

Check out this point in the video below between Lee Whitwell (representing the Florida Smash team from Major League Pickleball) and Rob Cassidy (representing the Chimeras team).

It is not too often that a player completely swings and misses , but it can happen – even at the highest pro levels, like it did for Cassidy. This is a good reminder that the easiest way to reduce your unforced errors is to simply watch the ball. It’s simple, but it’s true and it works! Watch the pickleball all the way to your paddle. If you pull your eyes off of the ball too quickly, you will pull your head, upper body, and paddle off of the ball and certainly get a mishit, or even a complete whiff, as a result.
