So you think that power is the name of the game for Pickleball? Actually, the game of Pickleball combines both power and finesse. Most beginners attempt to power all their shots past their opponents. But just watch any professional Pickleball match and you will see over 90% of the time the players hit a soft third shot just over the net. This is then followed by a series of short shots (dinking) within the NVZ. Why is this strategy employed by all advanced players? This course, ideal for beginners to 3.0 rated players, will answer this question and will place you on the path to the next level. Your instructor, Larry Barbiaux, a 4.5 rated tournament player, will explain and demonstrate the skills required to master the soft game. You will have the opportunity to practice these skills and take away a number of drills that you can use to practice on your own.
