    Brilliant actually watching a PB student being coached! (No pressure, Eddie). Love your teaching style, SJ. Rgds from Canada.

    Very nice, use a lob to get back into playing offensive, need to incorporate getting the weight forward, THANKS!

    I’m so glad that you have started to broadcast these lessons on YouTube! Now players in out of the way locations can benefit from your knowledge.

    What do think about lobbing cross court instead of down the line? It seems to me that if you are trying to hit an offensive lob it would be more effectively hit cross court. The main reason being that you have way more room with which to work.

    Think the lesson could be more quickly & precisely depicted if YOU (Simone) modeled the perfect form/stroke/execution instead of watching you instruct a student who is intermittently approximating the desired result. Still gleaned a bit, thanks.

    Great Job in helping people improve. Your encouraging words promote learning.

    Many pickleball players whine and complain about my using the lob…actually, those who whine about it are those who cannot return the effective and strategic lob shot due to their lack of athleticism and ability!

    Excellent video. Very well explained and very helpful having the actual teaching session in the video. It makes the viewer feel like the student, as well. Good job.

    I loved learning how to better lob from the kitchen as forehand and backhand AND where to dink so I won’t be as likely lobbed against. Can’t wait to drill this! Thank you!!

    A perfect situation for this is when your opponent is trying to “read” your next dink and drops their paddle to anticipate the shot. With their paddle down and their weight forward; a quick disguised lob is going to be very awkward to try and recover.
