ADVANCED (3.0 AND ABOVE) PICKLEBALL CLINIC: STRATEGIES TO HIT SHOTS WITH A PURPOSEIn order to hit a purposeful pickleball shot, a player must have a strategy and understand “why they are hitting that particular shot". And in order to understand this “why”, it is important for a player to be a good observer of the game. In this clinic we will discuss and practice observing the game. We will see how observing what our opponents are doing, what our partner is doing, and what we are doing should influence the types of shots we hit. Our goal will to be utilize the knowledge gained from our observations to create more winning shots.June 5th Clinic: THE SERVEThe serve is the single shot we hit most often in the game, and the shot we typically practice the least. If you believe that the only purpose of the the serve is to “ just get the ball in play to get the point started,” come prepared to have your mind changed. See how the serve should be used as a valuable offensive shot, not just a passive shot. Join your instructor in discussing and practicing serves that can be used strategically to create advantages and winning opportunities for your team.We will talk about serving strategies, types of serves, spins, and how they are effectively used. There will be plenty of time to practice these shots, and to learn from each other.THE INSTRUCTOR: STEVE WALKERSteve has been a pickleball player and observer of the game for over a dozen years.
