Phoenix Pickleball News – 20220711 – Archived Version

Latest N. Phoenix Pickleball News – July 11, 2022

OLD NEWS


 

This is an archived version of a previously issued pickleball newsletter. The most current N. Phoenix Newsletter is available by clicking HERE!

 

Latest N. Phoenix Pickleball News – July 11, 2022

Hello N. Phoenix Pickleball Players:

Sorry that this is somewhat delayed, but I have been away from home and my usual technology gear.



***** City of Phoenix Summer Schedule *****

For those who have already visited the community centers in Phoenix, this will probably not be new with the EXCEPTION that this is the most current version of the summer schedule.

***** 30 Best Plays of BEN JOHNS *****

Ben Johns has been one of the top ranked pickleball players. The video below is an archive of some of his amazing shots including several ATP (Around the Post) shots.

I am not saying it is magic, but when someone possesses such skills it seems that way. If you want to be entertained by pickleball goodness for 11 minutes, watch this video.

 


NOTE
– A good number of Ben’s winners are set up by careful dinks and softer shots.



***** OLYMPIC MOVEMENT ROAD TO GOLD for Pickleball *****

I am not sure how many players know that there is an International Federation of Pickleball (IPF) planning to petition to have pickleball become an Olympic sport.

Their latest newsletter (Download HERE) includes the following summation on page 3:

Note: This process can only be successful with a united international community willing to promote pickleball as a unified group. Our hope is that we can all join together to complete this goal.”



***** VIDEO – Footwork: A Key to Pickleball Success *****

As pickleball coach and commentator Mark Renneson points out, it is often the less flashy nuances of a sport that make the difference between a player being good or great.

We tend to focus on hitting the ball, which of course is important, but do we think as much about our footwork and positioning? The video below featuring Simone Jardim and Lucy Kovalova vs Catherine Parenteau and Callie Smith, analyzes a professional tournament point to highlight some of the finer skills.

 

General Observations

  • All players watch every ball
  • Paddles are always up and in the ready position after each stroke
  •  
    Subscribe to the Third Shot Sports Pickleball Newsletter for more pickleball videos, information and fun!


    ***** Pickleball makes it to Sports Illustrated website*****

    There are: Too many leagues. Too many federations. Battling billionaires. Bad behavior. And the growth of a booming sport is on the line.
