Goal-Setting in Pickleball

Anyone who has learned a new sport knows how frustrating it can be to try to remember a lot of things at the same time. How do I hold the paddle? Where should I stand? Where should I aim? Should I use a backswing when volleying? Etc. Etc. Etc. Instead of cluttering your brain with a multitude of things, try working on only ONE goal at a time. Tomorrow when you play, concentrate on seeing the ball actually contact the paddle. Which part of the face of the paddle is being contacted? Does a pickleball flatten at all when making contact? Think of only that one objective during the entire time that you are playing. The next day of play, work on another objective - but only ONE. It might be to be sure to use a backswing and a followthrough when hitting ground strokes. You will discover, after several days of playing, that your game has improved!
