Improving the contact point and continuous forward movement during the transition to the non-volley zone is an area of great opportunity. The use of progressions will often significantly speed up the learning process. This lesson demonstrates the proper contact point and movement from the baseline to the non-volley zone line.
The purpose of this video is to demonstrate the correct contact point and movement fundamentals when
transitioning from the baseline to the non-volley zone line, NVZ. The use of progressions from ball to ball to ball to ball to paddle allows players to focus on the mechanics of the movements reducing the learning curve.
The key focus is on the proper movement, ready position, and contact point when transitioning from the baseline to the non-volley zone area.
This pickleball drill is convenient as you can practice many things - controlled forward movement, contact point, shot selection from drives to volleys to drops, accuracy, etc. You can change the drill, and how to score points as applicable to the area you are working.
Improving decision-making will facilitate your transition from the baseline to the NVZ. Watch our library's “Pickleball Strategy and Tactics: Decision Making” lesson. Decision-making is about being prepared with the correct ready position so that you can take all the information available to you before deciding on your next shot(s). This video will demonstrate some examples of decision-making.
The key focus in decision making is to ensure you are always ready for the next shot with your paddle in a ready position, shoulders and feet squared to the direction the ball is coming from, and being aware of the position of your position as well as the position of those around you.
