    When you were first learning to play did anyone explain why it’s important for the returner to get to the net ASAP?

    Great tip !! Can see how that will make a difference.

    I have been saying "return and run" in my classes, but like "hit and run" a lot better. Thanks so much for all you do!

    One common mistake beginners do is to play too far forward on the return of serve. Most pickleball instructors teach a deep serve. Beginners tend to think that just behind the line service line is the best place to stand to return the serve. The results is that deep serves land close to their feet and they hit the ball as they are backing up. Many times this awkward hit is too short, and attackable by the serving team. So stay back and allow enough room for a deep bounce, especially if the current server has burnt you with a deep serve before.
