So this is Davis pickleball with pickleball Central and in this video of our mini series we're going to go over some strategy about how to play Pickleball how to work more effectively with your doubles partner and come to the net when we want to how to win more points and more matches with a couple different strategies that we're going to.

Show you in this quick little video Let's Get Right to it all right so why do we even want to come up to the net and pickleball I think it's easier when we do so right now we're hitting shots from further away but when we come up to the net we have the ability to hit down on the ball.

If I want to hit my opponent's feet they just become a lot more in view now that I'm at the net so he leaves it high I can smack it into his feet if I was back when he hit that ball that ball would have bounced and I would have had to do this that's not very offensive I'm not winning right now look I'm trying to gain space by the Nets but the biggest.

Thing is when do we come up to the net when we want to come up to the net or come up to the kitchen line is when we don't think our opponent's going to hurt us with the ball and the one thing that we know they can't hurt us through is the good old net so if I see that my ball is going to dip below the net I'm going to scoot up it's almost like a.

Game of red light green light if I see that the ball is going to dip below I'm going to scoot up that one stays a little high I'm gonna stay a little high I'm going to stay that one's low and I'm here and now if he leaves the ball high I can smack him if I was back I wasn't going to be able to be offensive so we come up here so we.

Can be more offensive we can end those points so even if we're uncomfortable right now being here it is going to help us and an added benefit even if I kind of mishit the ball they might go over now I don't know how I would demonstrate that yeah.

Awesome so Dustin just talked about when you're at the Baseline when and how you want to come up to the net and make your way to the kitchen line well what's the strategy if you're already at the kitchen line and our opponent is trying to make their way up to the net well we're just trying to keep our opponent back so my goal right now is to keep.

Dustin back in a game he'd be wanting to he he would want to come up to the net and he's trying to get a good drop so he can come up to that but I'm just trying to hit the ball deep and at his feet because right now I'm already at an advantage it's harder for Dustin just like he just said to win the point on me when I'm already at the net so I want to.

Keep my advantage going along with that another thing I have to recognize is if he hits a good drop I have to respect that drop I can't keep trying to hit it back to him or else he's going to be up at the kitchen line ready so I'm reading the ball so if Dustin hits a good draw and he comes up and I try to keep him back.

He's gonna head down on it and win the point so as the person at the kitchen line you want to keep your opponents back but also read their Ball and only attack the balls that are high enough foreign how we said that we only want to come up to the net or come up to the kitchen when we don't think our opponent can.

Hurt us which again is when the ball is going to dip below the net if we get a little bit too excited if we get a little too aggressive and we start to come in on a ball that's a little bit High I don't want to be here anymore had he done that same thing and I was back here I'd be okay I'd hit the same shot and I.

Would come up on another one but if I happen to rush up on a ball that was too high then I'm a Sitting Duck because remember the point if the overall strategy of this game is to hit it at your opponent's feet hit it at your opponent's feet and then when you can smack it through those feet so why would I want to put my feet into a bad.

Situation by opening them up to get rolled out so don't get too aggressive coming up here wait for your shot and wait for the ball to dip below the net and then take a step or two if you have time to take more do it but take a step or two get a little bit closer and then play the point out from here you're here you earned it let's use it.

Foreign so in summary in our strategy video we want to take real estate we want to get up to the kitchen so that we're offensive only when we don't think our opponent's going to hurt us so like we talked about we don't want to attack the net when our opponent is going to be.

Able to expose our feet so if we leave it high stay put and get comfortable with level one of the drill that we showed but if that ball it has a trajectory where it's going to dip below the net before your opponents get to it start to eat your butt up here and start to try to hit down on the ball when you can that's how you work together.

Effectively as a doubles team and that's how we win more matches so please smash the like And subscribe button below and we'll catch you in the next video
