Description: In this training module, we will do a deeper dive into techniques to hone more consistent and effective serves, dinks, volleys and overheads! We will learn about third-shot drops, practice drop serves and volley serves (and learn how to add various types of spin to serves), learn the keys to hitting a successful volley (without hitting the ball into the net), and learn how to hit overheads without committing the cardinal sin in pickleball of running backwards! We will spend some time at the end practicing what we have learned by playing games.
You do NOT have to have previously taken my Pickleball 101 class to take this Pickleball 102 class, but you should have played at least once or taken at least one lesson in order to get the most out of this class.
