** NEW! ** Stroke of the Month: How to NOT Hit out Balls

May 19 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

  • The Stroke of the Month Specialty class is a 1 ½ hour session and is taught by Pictona’s IPTPA certified instructor, Sylvia Whitehouse and is limited to 8 participants.

    Is this class appropriate for you? Participants should be 2.5/3.0 or above and the ability to execute successful forehand and backhand strokes with a 50%+ accuracy as well as being able to maintain a 8+ shot or more rally.

    In this month’s class, “How Not to Hit Out Balls” will be the emphasis.  The instructor, will demonstrate how you are giving points away by hitting balls that are going out.

    • Learn to confidently step out of the way when balls are driven at you whether you are at the kitchen line, transitional volley zone or closer to the baseline
    • Learn to use your paddle as a yard stick to identify balls rising above your paddle with pace are not to be hit whereas ball below your paddle will most likely be in depending on pace and top spin from opponent.
    • Learn to help your partner NOT to hit out balls. Learn to watch the opponents paddle and stroke to anticipate an out ball is being hit.

    Players will participate in several drills of “game situation scenarios” to practice concepts and the last part of the lesson, participants will play out points.

    *Routinely drilling, practicing and or having instruction will help achieve consistency and lower unforced errors also helping to build muscle memory player confidence and improve game mental toughness.

    It is my hope that you will enjoy the class and find it helpful.  Pickle on!!!
