"Pickleball -- A Guide for Teaching." We are new pickleball ambassadors for Richmond/Chesterfield, Va and I could use some help in teaching new players. Thanks, Linda Sprouse-Scott Sorry about your injury and upcoming surgery. I had a recent achilles issue in which I kept playing through the pain, resulting in 4 months of PT and suspension of playing for that long. I should have listened to my body.

Comment on The Importance of the Paddle Position in Pickleball by Barney http://pickleballsuccess.com/2008/05/the-importance-of-the-paddle-position-in-pickleball/#comment-8416 Barney Tue, 22 Mar 2011 12:06:48 +0000 http://pickleballsuccess.com/?p=29#comment-8416 This of course is true but a lot will depend on whether you have a flat stroke of bring the paddle from low to high in a stroke thus imparting top spin which I see more and more with the top players.

Comment on The “Soft” Game of Pickleball by Barney http://pickleballsuccess.com/2011/03/the-soft-game-of-pickleball/#comment-8415 Barney Tue, 22 Mar 2011 11:56:50 +0000 http://pickleballsuccess.com/?p=76#comment-8415 Whole heartedly agree. Our Fun in the Sun tournament last week run by Mike Johnson and Martha Wasserman was a prime example. Players from 13 States and Canada and the level of play was exciting and the short game was prominent. Wonderful weather, wonderful play and very well run tournament in Sun City West, Az. Watching Pat Kane and Al Hagar work the soft game for gold in most tournaments is a real treat. Whole heartedly agree.

The players at St. George say I am pushing 4.0. I'd like to get there and maybe you can help. I would like to learn with other strong players as it is hard to find older females as Obsessed as I am. Where are you located? Thanks, Sue 970-231-8661 Hi, I am 65 and I’ve played pickleball for almost 3 months. The players at St. George say I am pushing 4.0.

Comment on Your Role on the Sideline of a Pickleball Match by Anonymous http://pickleballsuccess.com/2009/08/your-role-on-the-sideline-of-a-pickleball-match/#comment-4252 Anonymous Fri, 02 Oct 2009 15:37:39 +0000 http://pickleballsuccess.com/?p=66#comment-4252 My guess is that the majority of pickleball courts in the country - certainly in the western states - are outdoors so that noise level isn't a factor. When playing indoors, especially if there are a lot of courts being used at one time, controlling the noise level would be extremely difficult. A consideration should be the reason for the noise. If noise is being produced for the purpose of distracting a player or players, the attempt should be made to control it. However, if the noise is the result of many players being active on lots of courts, it just has to be accepted and tolerated. That's my opinion! I hope this helps.

The social fitness benefits of Pickleball draws many players to the game. And all of us delight in the gathering of our Community of Players at tournaments. However, at MI indoor tournaments, the noise level soars to a deafening roar; making it hard for players to hear the refs call the score etc. What do you think? What is it like in other parts of the country? Has this already been discussed?
