Have you ever wondered why in some games you're able to beat players who are better than you if this has happened to you I can assure you it wasn't a fluke you probably utilized a few of the tips I'm about to go through without even realizing it I recommend going through this video as a checklist to make sure that you're focusing on all these.

Whenever you play if you haven't been on our channel before I'm Connor and welcome to enhanced pickleball today we're going over four tips to automatically win more and beat better players and let me tell you these tips are probably not what you think so let's get into it the first tip on our list is something that many players neglect when.

They lose their focus it's the kind of thing that requires your 100 attention throughout the point I'm talking about having a strong ready position when you're waiting for the ball and making sure that you're always in the right position on the court like I said if your opponents think they're better than you they may not be focusing on this so.

Dialing this in every game is an awesome way to get a huge Advantage focusing on ready position the main spot that we need to worry about this is when we're at the kitchen whether your opponents are driving the ball at your face from the back or using a speed up at the kitchen line and it always makes more sense to have your paddle up and ready.

Between shots never have your paddles dangling like this and remember guys a strong ready position applies to your legs too make sure that you always have a wide base with slightly bent knees so that you can explode in either direction we don't want to be standing up tall like a school bus we want to be low like a Ferrari check out how low all four.

Players are at this point second bar although I think he is taller than six three he's getting down in that athletic position all four players are in that athletic position not standing tall this gives them the ability to stay on balance when their opponents use push things and they need to Lunge for the ball by staying low they're able to.

Maintain their consistency regardless of what kind of shots their opponents throw at them another thing to consider is where we're standing on the court and when there's a million ways that you can get this wrong but today I'm going to address the top view that I see at the 3.0 to 4.0 level one way players mess up their positioning is they don't move.

Forward on a good drop or they do move forward on a bad drop whenever you hit a drop you should immediately identify whether it's good bad or okay if it's good you should move forward and try to make it to the kitchen if it's okay you should move to the transition zone if it's bad you should stay back and defend this model is simplistic and you.

Should adjust it for your ability but just know that you're positioning after the drop is arguably just as important as the drop itself another area players mess up their positioning is when they're at the kitchen particularly if you're about to get killed or you're in a fire fight it can make the world of difference to take a step back check out.

How when Tyson McGuffin gets put under pressure at this point him and his partner immediately moved back to give themselves more time if they were to have stayed right at the kitchen they definitely wouldn't have had enough time to react and know that if you're in this situation you won't have enough time to back up all the way but giving yourself.

A little more space can be the difference between winning and losing the point other than this another important reminder is that you should always get in quickly to the kitchen off your returns this could sound obvious but it's crazy to me how often I see players not doing this take your return while moving forward and make your way.

To the kitchen immediately trust me guys your positioning is not something that you want to neglect if you focus on this enough it can totally be the difference you need to beat higher level players and by combining this with this next tip you'll literally automatically win more just by increasing your intensity moving on our next tip might be the most.

Overlooked on the list I'm talking about using proper footwork the main place I see players neglect this is at the back of the court I'm telling you the amount of times that I've seen my students miss their third shot because they're out of position is off the charts check out how well Simone Jardine positions herself from this point for her drop and reset.

How she been lazy with her feet on her reset there's a very good chance that she would have been out of position and missed the ball the goal with her feet is to make it so we're never reaching or too close to the ball this way you're always in the position to move forward and use your body weight to hit the shot an important thing to consider is that.

In a point we should be focusing more on our footwork than our technique the number one reason players neglect their footwork is because they're too worried about how they're going to hit the ball the issue is that no matter how good your Technique is it's impossible to hit the shot well if you're out of position that said in our games we want to.

Prioritize our footwork as the main point of focus when preparing for our Shots by doing this you'll enhance every aspect effective your game this is the type of thing that can be the difference to beat players that are better than you if you haven't realized already beating better players is going to come from out competing them the only way we can do.

This though is by applying our focus and intensity to the right areas which we're going over now that said it's tough to put this to work if your partner isn't on the same page too so make sure to send them this video and guys if you're looking to take your game to the next level we created the dink pad to be your personal training partner drilling is.

The number one way to improve your game and the dingpad allows you to grow whenever you want on your own time in mistro I'm working on the accuracy of my dinks by aiming for the targets notice how I'm keeping my Strokes compact by drawing a line with my paddle towards the target this kind of intentional drilling is the only way to increase.

Your consistency and accuracy if you want to check out the dink pad head to the link in the description at number two I have something that you've probably thought about but you most likely haven't considered it like I'm about to go through I'm talking about not being too predictable when you're playing if you repeatedly use the same.

Strategy every Point your opponents will be able to lock onto it and get used to playing you that way that's said occasionally in pickleball the element of surprise can be your best friend I'm not saying that you should use a different strategy every point but every once in a while it makes sense to deviate from our core strategy to keep.

Our opponents on their toes to most players the core pickleball strategy is to try to make it into the kitchen after you're served whether that be with a drop or a different shot once you're in you patiently Dink and wait for the right ball to accelerate on your return you try your best to keep your opponents back with deep bullies.

That make it tough for them to move in if they make it in then you transition to the dink game if this sounds like you then the question is when should you deviate from this strategy and how should you deviate from this strategy this is where most players get this wrong many players just throw in the occasional Drive lob or drop shot where.

They're getting antsy or they feel like they haven't done it in a while when you mix it up and how often you mix it up should be based on your strengths and weaknesses and your opponent's strikes and weaknesses if your drive's incredible then throw this in more often if it's bad then maybe you don't use it too much on the other side if your.

Opponents are great at handling drives maybe you need to use the shot less you can apply this mindset to any shot that would fall into the category of mixing it up to me this means drives lobs Drop shots or any other shot that isn't used every Point your goal in every game should be to identify your opponent's weaknesses early once you do consider.

Your strengths and develop a custom plan to mix up your strategy that said on each of these shots you also want to make sure you're going for them when you have the right opportunity for example even if you have a really good drive it doesn't make sense to go for the shot if your opponent hits a super deep return throw this shot in when the return sits.

Up more they don't make it in quickly it's very important that you apply this opportunistic approach to mixing it up don't deviate from your course strategy just for the sake of changing things up every once in a while wait for the right moments then strike thinking about this kind of stuff is one of the easiest ways to win more and beat players who are at.

A higher level than you many times though it'll seem like deviating from your core strategy won't work anytime you throw in a shot that's out of the ordinary you get destroyed when this happens guys don't worry some players are just really good at handling these sorts of situations against these types of players there's only one way to win.

And so many players don't have the strength to utilize this I'm talking about being patient think about how many times you've lost points because you went for Big Shots too early or at the wrong times it's good to mix it up sometime but 70 of the time you want to be very patient within the standard strategy of pickleball being more.

Patient can easily be the difference to conquer higher level opponents looking at this point here notice how patient all the players are being they all know that it would be a poor decision to accelerate on a ball but they don't have the right opportunity that said they're all using aggressive digs to lure their opponents into hitting higher balls this.

Is the kind of patience that will consistently win you matches there's a reason why every probe dinking rally seems to last for 10 minutes patience wins the question is where on the court am I referring to being patient as I just highlighted the main place that we need to be patient is when we're at the kitchen we all know how tempting it can.

Be to go for a dumb speed up but as you probably know it's almost always better to wait for the right shot back to my handy chart we usually want to be patient in the yellow and the Red Zone once we get a shot in the green zone that's when we want to go big and if you're worried that your opponents are going to fire the ball at you first just.

Know that as long as you're keeping your dig slow and have a strong ready position you should be in a good position to beat them if they speed the ball up on you that said guys every tip on this list works together symbiotically so make sure to remember them all so that you can use them in every game that you play alone they're a.
