Well, first you have to think about your attacking strategy.
Are you attacking…
…from too far back in the court?
…from a low contact point?
…when you’re out of position?
…when you don’t really have a clear advantage at that stage of the point?
If any one of those things are true then you need to be smarter about when you attack during a pickleball point. You need to be sure that you have some kind of advantage going on for that particular shot.
Such as, you can hit down on the ball or your opponents are out of position or they have some kind of weakness exposed at that particular moment.
That’s definitely the first thing to consider…is your strategy sound?
If not, you need to be patient and attack on a better opportunity.
But, even with the best opportunities, your attacks will often come back twice as hard as you sent them and now you’re having to defend a counter-attack.
You will notice this happening more and more as you play a higher level of pickleball player.
Developing the skills to defend counter-attacks successfully is a must in pickleball if you hope to upgrade your level.
Since we are all mostly stuck at home these days, we made sure to show you how you can develop this skill while at home.
Work this skill (while at home) so that you will be that much better when you get back out to the courts.
Reply below and let me know how this drill went for you….
How many attacks were you able to block back over the net (and low to the net)?
Out of how many attempts?
