Brought to you ad free by The Better Pickleball Academy Find the answers to your pickleball questions here: BetterPickleball.com/Academy   You never see a sad pickleball player when they win.   But when they lose? Depends, but for many a losing day is a sad (or bad, disappointing, etc.) day.   Should it be?   The answer is a resounding “No!”    If you are like most, you have developed your sports’ mind around “win, good – lose, bad.” The reality, however, is that our relationship with sport is more nuanced than this binary good/bad framing.   At our podcast ..read more

Pickleball Pet Peeves – What’s the Cost?

1w ago
Get your FREE ticket to the 100% online Pickleball Summit here. We asked for your pet peeves. Over 300 players answered the call and shared them with us.   Many of the pet peeves shared with us were rules issues: line calls, illegal serves and just generally not following the rules. On the surface, maybe it is ok to feel this way. It is just a part of who we are or how we see things and leave it at that.   But scratch the surface and you find that there is, in fact, a cost to allowing your mind to be occupied with these sorts of thoughts. There are actual two costs:   1.  ..read more

Are you happy playing pickleball? PLUS Self 1 and Self 2

I was reminded of an important concept speaking to one of our team members who is a volleyball player converted to pickleball.   The conversation went something like this (group setting):   Me:      “Hard to lob Emily as she can get up in the air.” Emily:  “Yeah and I even like to jump when I do not have to.” Me:      “I’ve seen it. Ball can be at Emily’s head height and she is full in the air smashing that ball.” Emily:  “It makes me happy to jump like that.” Me:      “Good point. Happiness is paramount (or words to this effect ..read more

Your Relationship with Pickleball   Much of the information available about pickleball has to do with the details: How do I hit a certain shot? What is the latest paddle thing going on? What is the rule about [__________]?   There are many fewer resources that tackle our relationship with pickleball. The term “relationship” is one we use very intentionally. If you are reading these words, then you are more than just a once in a while player of the sport called pickleball. Rather, you are someone who enjoys a multi-faceted relationship with pickleball.   Social, exercise, persona ..read more

Is losing 3-11 not fun for you? It might be - depending on how you look at it PLUS Too old or unskilled to play pickleball?   You just got done playing 6 games, never scoring more than 3 points in a game.   I try to share come encouragement by saying to you “It’s not the end of the world.” You agree but then add “But it’s less fun.”   Is it less fun? Let’s talk about it.   Oftentimes when we are thinking through arguably negative situations, like not scoring more than 3 points in a game for 6 games in a row, the negativity stems not from the situation itself. Rather, the ne ..read more

The PPA, Hardwiring, and Finger on the Paddle
Pickleball Therapy | In2Pickle
by Tony Roig
1M ago
In this triple episode we address three different areas; things in the PPA that merits some conversation, hardwiring concept and, in the RIFF, we talk about putting your finger on the paddle. 1. On the PPA experience, I was watching two matches and I observed how flaws in the mental game spill over into your physical performance, shot making, execution, your thinking and ultimately decision making. There are good examples from those matches that I share with you in this episode.  It's very important not to lose sight of the mental side of the game to feel better and play better. 2. The se ..read more

The Pickleball Mindset - Our Review | Special Episode

by Tony Roig
1M ago
I had a chance to read this new book on the market, The Pickleball Mindset, that's written by my fellow senior professional, pickleball player, Dayne Gingrich, and his co-author, Jill Martin. One really powerful concept that Dayne and Jill address is to stop "chasing the win" and find your purpose. If you listen to this podcast you know we are big fans of defining our relationship with this sport and why we play pickleball. Thus my biggest takeaway was the idea of pre-accepting that anything can happen in a pickleball game, just like in life. The book has some nice nuggets that I'm going to sh ..read more

You need the Erne in your life ... right? - PLUS 250,000 downloads thanks to you

The journey to be a more well-rounded player can be filled with distractions that pull you in different directions, that are not as productive as others, the Erne being a good example. When you watch the Erne in action in pro matches, you'll find that it's of very limited strategic value.   What's an Erne? In this episode I explain to you what that is, why it's not an effective shot, and unless you're super excited about it, I would suggest putting it on pause and really think about it, again. Because winning in pickleball comes from the basic, non-sexy stuff, as well as doing it better a ..read more
