Drill to 3.5 Clinic
Firming up the Soft Game
Date: July 26
Time: Drills start at 8:00 a.m. and run for one hour. Open play follows the drill session.
Location: Sawtooth Middle School
Clinic Topic: Firming the Soft Game
Having a good soft game is a critical component of skilled pickleball players.
As you get better and better, you’ll be playing others who play better and better.
Why is it important to work on your soft game?
- A good soft game helps you NOT give your opponent a ball that they can win the point with.
- A good soft game helps you shift the game play. If you are the weaker players, there are places and ways to utilize the soft game so that your opponents are forced to hit to your partner.
- A good soft game is utilized from ALL areas of the court–not just at the kitchen line.
- A good soft game is one of the most effective tools against ‘bangers’.
Come to the drills and learn more about the soft game.
You will be doing drills from three areas of the court, each one showing you how and why to improve your soft game skills.
So if you want to improve your soft game, come on down!!!!
