Why Can’t I Hit My Ball In – Spring & Summer Programs! – The Perfect Pickleball Warmup

Universal Rackets Weekly Update!

Let’s Talk About Your Pickleball Game

Question: Why Can’t I Hit My Ball In The Court?

Answer: If you are missing shots, first you have to determine how you are missing. There are 2 types of misses that can occur. 1: In The Net 2: Long

#1 If you miss in the net: you need to GET UNDER THE BALL! Now this is easier said than done, however if you can apply certain tips and cues to help you execute this: you will never miss again.

#2 If you miss long: a player can miss long for multiple reasons including but not limited to: holding the paddle to tight, not executing a full swing, popping body up pre maturely.

If you miss that is ok, everyone miss but here’s the catch… NEVER MISS THE SAME WAY 3X IN A ROW. Make an adjustment, pickleball is all about making adjustments. Example, if you miss 2x in a row in the net, hit the next ball long. Make adjustments, understand why you are missing and how to fix (the videos) and make way less errors, and win more points!

The Perfect Pickleball Warmup! Prevent Injuries

As the popularity in Pickleball is skyrocketed so has the amount of pickleball related injuries. Think about the basic pickleball warmup before you play, a few dinks, volleys, drives, drops. During this “warm up” players are not actually warming up their whole body for the movements that are to come. It is very common for players to say “first game” or that “they start slow” when it is actually because it takes a full game for players to get their body loose and ready for play. Players need to “warm up” before the actual “warm up”.

Tyler from Universal Rackets teamed up with Dr. Nikola Gagic from ChrioLab to go over the perfect pickleball warm up. In this video Dr. Gagic takes Tyler step by step through a full body Pickleball-specific warmup.
