Keep your paddle up, don't lose your serve, serve deep - high - floating balls into the opponent's court, keep the return of serve in, keep the ball in play, clear the net by good measure, control the net/non-volley line, in doubles move parallel with your partner side to side & front to back, be patient, hit many of your shots low & down the middle or low to opponent's backhand, split-step, third - shot - drop, dink, drop-shot, lob, no unforced errors, don't back-peddle since that contributes to falling, poach, volley - volley - volley, be persistent & consistent, and give your opponents ample time to lose the point.

When poaching - move just before your opponent hits the ball

Less is more
Frequency may be more important than duration
You are what you do ... not what you say you'll do
It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves
Make your mom proud
Do the right thing
Buy low - sell high
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding"
"For we live by faith - not by sight"
2 Corinthians 5:7
... Pickleball ...
Before you speak, listen.
Before you write, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you invest, investigate.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.
Before you retire, save.
Before you die, give.”
--William Arthur Ward --
Even a blind squirrel can find an acorn some of the time

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work ha

It ain't over ... till it's over.
Make sure your worst enemy doesn't live between
your own ears
Make each day your masterpiece
A good pickle ball player plays where the ball is. A great pickleball player plays where the ball is going to be
Pickleball medals eventually gather dust.
Pickleball memories last forever.
If you fail to prepare, you've prepared to fail
It does not matter how slow you go
as long as you do not stop
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on you own understanding (Proverbs 3:5)
I never lose. I either win ... or ... I learn
Do it -- Fix it -- Try it
Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction
In pickleball (unlike tennis)
minimize back swing ... maximize follow-thru
There are two kinds of perfect pickleball players:
those who are dead, and
those who have not been born yet.
It's in old kettles that one makes the best soup
Persistence can change failure
Success is where preparation and opportunity meet
