Pickleball Defense - Bangers

Anyone who has played pickleball more than a few times has faced an opponent, or team, that slams the ball repeatedly low over the net. We affectionately call them 'bangers' and they win plenty of games, until they meet a team that knows how to diffuse the power, neutralize the attack and play better defense.

In this lesson I will teach you the techniques to respond to those hard shots and how to hold your ground with confidence. Then we will use a ball machine to shoot hundreds of balls at you while you block and drop them. Repetition is the key to success!

Improve Your Pickleball Defense lessons can be scheduled by selecting a 1 Hour Private Lesson and adding a note to your appointment that you would like to work on defense.

Students should be advanced beginner, or intermediate pickleball players. If you are brand new to pickleball, please first try our weekly Small Group Introduction to Pickleball Clinics. If you have 3-4 people in your group please book a Private 2 hour Introduction to Pickleball lesson.
