Hi Jack!

I just want to let you know I haven't forgotten about you and returning the demo paddles. We've had a lot of rain here in Michigan but have been able to get out to try the paddles a few times just the same. My daughter and I definitely will each be ordering paddles and my brother as well...

Thanks for the upgrade allowance.

The Chaos H Special Edition with Polymer Core and carbon fiber diamond weave surface has made a significant difference in my game.

Jack, received the paddle, used it last night, I like it, the design as well. Today the bag came! Best case I have seen, nice job on design, it will be an example of what a PB case should be.

I tried out my new chaos paddle yesterday and I love the feel of the ball as it rebounds off the paddle face, soft but powerful! I am a lefty and happy I ordered a TSD custom paddle.

Trouble Ending the Point?

In tennis, an overhead from the frontcourt is a point-ender. In pickleball, not so much. It may take 5, 6, 7 overheads to win a point. Sometimes that’s not even enough, and you’re left with a ball in the net and a really sore shoulder.

Where to Send Your Returns

The biggest key when returning a serve is to keep it deep. Keep the other team back to maintain your positional advantage.

1. One of the most popular spots on the court to send the return is down the middle. Not exactly on the ‘T’, however, it’s a good idea to aim just to the left of the ‘T’, (assuming both opponents are right-handed).

A 5.0 Level Skill Anyone Can Develop

One of the biggest gaps in strategy and technique between 4.0- and 5.0-level players is that 5.0s can execute strong fourth (and sixth) shots that keep their opponents back off the kitchen line.
