How to play pickleball. What is pickleball? Instruction, strategies, tips & tricks for the pickleball novice to tournament player. I, Coach David, am a Pure Blood Pickleball player (PBPP). Which means I was not a tennis, racquetball or ping pong player prior to learning pickleball. I try and seek out the best trainers and knowledge I can find and incorporate it into my game. I have been a professional golfer, a semi-professional baseball player and am an expert in self defense and sell a dvd and online program demonstrating that knowledge (see at But my newest passion is pickleball, and I plan on being a top player. Therefore, I will learn from anyone willing to share knowledge. Thanks for watching. I hope this helps you in your pickleball journey. Please subscribe, like, comment & share. I plan on posting many pickleball related videos including gear reviews, instructional videos and more. My home turf is Lake Havasu City, AZ. You can contact me at pickleballmadeeasy @ (no spaces).

    Attended a short clinic with Hella and her strategy still sticks with me. Love this video.

    Aloha Helle! A fabulous clinic. Thanks for this. I’ve been taught this over the past year, unfortunately many of my partners haven’t so I get frustrated (like you- LOL) when we’re not in sync with each other and I get burned. I’m sure I’ve done my share of burning, too. Most of the time it has to do with my partner not getting to the center, and sometimes I fail at it too. Great reminders, especially if one wants to compete at more advanced levels. Mahalo!!!! BTW where can we find a list of your upcoming clinics?

    I feel like Helle is stressing some fine points but I missed the first part where she talks about the bug picture.

    Glitch from 5:05 to 5:41 and 27:27 to 27:57. Video speeds up but the audio is fine. Don’t know what happened. Sorry

    This was a fabulous vid on strategy. I’m new to PB so I’m eating this up and will be watching this again.

    This clinic is a gold mine. Thanks Coach.

    So glad this video "popped up". Once we are back to traveling safely, any clinic plans in mainland or Canada?

  11. Greg Smith on April 4, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Many videos teach stroke mechanics, but Helle teaches STRATEGY!! Her experience as a lifetime player/instructor/writer really shines in her videos. There are many more of her videos on Youtube.

    Thanks for posting your session with Helle. I love her approach to doubles Pickleball. I have watched this video three times and have picked up a “gem” each viewing. Come up to Flagstaff sometime when you want to get out of the heat. We have a fun group of dedicated players. We would love to play with you.

    Visit Helle Sparre at her site. Go to one of her clinics. You will love it! I highly recommend it! Coach David

  16. Gil Metcalfe on April 4, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Any chance of posting the entire clinic? Helle told me it was a long clinic and I’m sure lots of people would…like myself… love to see all the footage ya have. I’m from Canada so slim chance of her and my paths crossing. She recommended this video but I want more! Lol.

    I love your teaching in this video. I just subscribed so I don’t miss any of your future lessons. You are the best!
