It's a quick note this week as many celebrate and prepare for the holidays:
Shift with your partner!
Pickleball is all about percentages — which is why you should shift with your partner to follow the ball after you hit it. And at all times, one player should be covering the middle, and one player should be covering the sideline on the side that the ball was hit to.
This way, your opponents will see you and your partner in front of the easiest spots for them to hit. This makes it less likely that your opponent will be able to hit a winner. If you shift properly, you will be covering your opponent's high percentage shots, and you'll be more likely to be in position for your shots!
