As the pickleball return team, you want to keep the serve team back at the baseline. As the pickleball serve team, if you are in trouble, you do not want to expose your feet to attack. A good example of a pickleball punch volley is an added bonus in this point breakdown. This is part of our Project 4.0 point breakdown video series where we break down a pickleball point to look at optimal and not as optimal play so that we can improve our games.
Thank you to Chasing Dill for allowing us use of the footage in this video.
Thank you also to the players in the video for their play.
