Fun Pickleball Machine Drills “There is no glory in practice, but without practice, there is no glory.”
What’s a pickleball machine? The SCHH Pickleball Club owns its own pickleball machine. It’s similar to a tennis ball machine except it’s designed for pickleballs. It can feed you balls at different intervals, at different angles, and with different spins. It will help you improve your ground stokes, overheads, lobs, drop shots, and more.
What are the benefits of using a ball machine? In a word, repetition. It’s important to develop muscle memory, so that when you’re on the court in the heat of the game, hitting the perfect shot will become automatic.
What drills will be covered in the class? Base line (forehand and backhand) return of serve Base line (forehand and backhand) third shot drop No Volley Zone/Kitchen line returns (forehand and backhand)
