    Hello Jordan. Thank you for all your videos and tips. One question… How do I get my hands on that dope shirt? Much love. MABUHAY!!!

  2. Stephen Cohen on May 9, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Great job and great points. Quick question…when I volley from the baseline, I can easily and consistently drop shots into the no-volley zone, and swing in a relaxed manner. In a game, I have a tendency to tense my arm and shorten my stroke. How can I break that habit? I look forward to watching more of your videos. I think you are an effective communicator and you make the lessons easy to follow. Thanks!

    Thanks for another great video. Wish I could get my asawang Pinay to play some Pickleball. She won’t go in the sun without a payong.

  4. Fernando Monterey California on May 9, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Just a question are you Pinoy?

  5. Marilynn Smith on May 9, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    I think demos would make more sense if four players were on the court.

  6. Gayle Wilson on May 9, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    ‘Oh’ is a letter zero is a number… correct ? ? ?

  7. Born upon a wave on May 9, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Shouldn’t she be teaching and coaching? 😉

  8. Jeff W on May 10, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Hi Jordan. You talk a lot about “the transition area to the NVZ” after the 3rd shot drop.
    Isn’t stopping there an invitation to getting hit at your feet?
    I remember a pro who said be quicker on a good drop and get all the way up but don’t chase the trash.
    I’m confused.

  9. Stephen Piper on May 10, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Hi. I’m new to pickleball. I played racketball n hand ball. I don’t understand the "Scoring" can anyone explain?

  10. Trogg on May 10, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Your skills always amaze me. The accuracy and movement on the ball are what I will strive for as reasonably new at this game.

  11. B. Mason on May 10, 2021 at 12:02 am

    USA Pickleball clearly states the ball CANNOT be thrown or tossed. You toss it up on every serve, thus faulting on every point.

  12. Randy Hoffman on May 10, 2021 at 12:02 am

    So, which came first – pickleball or Katrina? Another well-done video. I especially like the section regarding the transition zone. With one total knee replacement and the other going that way some day, not a whole lot of sprinting to the NVZ happening in my game.

  13. Ernie Medina, Jr. on May 10, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Love your jersey!!! Go Fil-Am Pball!!!! LOL! Mabuhay!!!!

  14. Carl Newton on May 10, 2021 at 12:03 am

    great tips for sure.. one tip from a viewer… video in the SUN not the shade. makes it hard to see you swing and such.. thanks a million..

  15. Sw3 W on May 10, 2021 at 12:04 am

    A few things not mentioned. Must be quick and to be quick you can’t be a lardy. If you’re a lardy go to omad in reddit. Also you’ll need to have good vision with large lenses so you can minimize blind spots. Source: the source is me, a 5.5 rated dodge ball player.

  16. Paul on May 10, 2021 at 12:04 am

    I like turtles 🐢

  17. B BTB on May 10, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Wow, that was a great video…lots of balls! I am right on the precipice of being a 4.0 player so I found your exersize very helpful. I have the shots you have identified but my resets need more work. Thaks for pointing that one out!

  18. Paul Olson on May 10, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Excellent instruction and good ideas on how to actually have effective practice sessions! 🙂

  19. Sarvani Suzanne Viger-Edson on May 10, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Katrina is GOOD!!!!

  20. Mike Tierney on May 10, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Why won’t this video play?

  21. Pickleball Journey on May 10, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Good drills!

  22. Dominic Rodriguez on May 10, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Links to that shirt ! ?

  23. Michael Robertson on May 10, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Jordan, what is the best way to aim the serve to hit these targets, while watching the ball during the toss?
    Thankyou for your great videos!

  24. Tom Bishop on May 10, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Great tips and nice looking courts. Where do you play? Thanks again.

  25. John Hill on May 10, 2021 at 12:15 am

    thanks for sharing. please the lovely Katrina can teach the next one.

  26. Stupify8 on May 10, 2021 at 12:15 am

    The video I didn’t know I needed! Thank you (especially for tip #3). Would love a follow up video of other must have skills/shots as I believe a lot of players are at the cusp of becoming 4.0 players 😊

  27. Don Eugenio on May 10, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Simple to the point skill drills…..solid!

  28. Nery Coleman on May 10, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Love Katrina💕❤️

  29. massey3129 on May 10, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Quiet Katrina is a monster on the PB court. She is a rock solid 4.0 pb player.

  30. mrbeast mrbeast on May 10, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Katrina is a great player but I think she can benefit from a continental grip on her volleys.

  31. Dean Penn on May 10, 2021 at 12:23 am

    great video! Thanks for awesome tips for improving game. Would have been great ending to the video to hop over the net and give your wife hug for helping. Thank you!

  32. Janice Nicolle on May 10, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Love this breakdown

  33. Mary Wilson on May 10, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Love this one. Need to practice practice. Great video. Tha nks

  34. Evan Hayes on May 10, 2021 at 12:26 am

    I think Katrina talks, but no one who hears her has been seen again.

  35. Charles Bell on May 10, 2021 at 12:27 am

    These are awesome drills, I have definitely improved my skills.

  36. James E. Symington on May 10, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Can you tell me the name and type of paddle you are using?

  37. phukit on May 10, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Talking about pickles makes me hungry.

  38. John Smith on May 10, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Not much teaching, just demo of play. Saying "you need to practice a serve" is not teaching, it’s advice.

  39. Grace on May 10, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Katrina is good!

  40. Vito Berlingeri on May 10, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Jordan, I know you answered this question many times before so I apologize for the redundancy. May I ask if your encore paddle is an elongated paddle, I am currently playing with a gearbox paddle control model, like it but may want to try something a little softer. By the way Great Video tips! Thanks Vito

  41. Ray McClure on May 10, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Would you be OK with training new players to return the serve HIGH & DEEP?

  42. Tobin Wazzan on May 10, 2021 at 12:43 am

    I like your choice of four skills. Thank you much for the video and sharing your expertise.

  43. Guy Loehr on May 10, 2021 at 12:44 am

    great videos.. I transitioned pretty easily to Pickleball, played about a year and a half, but played tennis 45 years ago and picked it right up. some of the same strategies apply, need to good serve as you want them to make a defensive return, and return it deep return from their serves, that allows you to move up to the NVZ line quicker… you are absolutely correct about NEEDING a good 3rd shot drop shot into the kitchen, a very hard shot to master, but you won’t compete at higher levels without it.. you guys are great, and yes, I learned the NVZ rules !!! thanks you guys..

  44. Barry Wilcox II on May 10, 2021 at 12:46 am

    I suggest using a more realistic target other than cones (i.e. a plastic ring or chalk line) b/c you should be aiming for a spot on the court. Also, while hitting a cone may be good target practice for the server, trying to hit a deflection off a cone is likely counterproductive and frustrating for a returner. Here’s one thing to make the 3rd-shot drop drill fun and challenging – keep score! The baseline partner gets a point for each good 3rd shot into The Kitchen. When one goes awry, the partners change stations, when the new baseline partner keeps score for 3rd shots hit into The Kitchen. Play to 50 or 60 points. Want an even greater challenge? Deploy what I call the "Chutes-and-Ladders" rule: your score goes to zero when you miss a shot! BTW – both partners have equally-important responsibilities in this drill: the Kitchen-line player has to hit baseline balls (not winners) to the baseline partner, who has to hit good 3rd- shot drops.

  45. Nicola Komlodi on May 10, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Best video yet. Lots of information but conveyed in a much more concise format than other videos in your series. Thanks Jordan and Katrina!

  46. GoneByRV on May 10, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Excellent drills. I’ve seen so many people unable (or unwilling) to progress because they lack these skills. Well done to both of you.

  47. Kimi on May 10, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Give katrina some prime time😁

  48. Eric Anderson on May 10, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Killer video. 👍🏼👍🏼

  49. Carol Nip on May 10, 2021 at 12:51 am

    You two are doing a great job!

  50. Barry DAWG on May 10, 2021 at 12:52 am

    thank you … your wife is very good…
