Steve Paranto is the first Pickleball Hall of Famer I have interviewed on the podcast.  We talk about who is being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2021, the drop serve, and three advanced strategies to help your Pickleball game.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Who is being inducted into the Pickleball Hall of Fame this year
  • Why Steve recommended the drop serve be included in the Pickleball rule book
  • How to overcome a dinking misconception
  • Whether you should hit it to your opponents feet
  • Where to return the ball if your opponent hits a good third shot
  • Steve’s practice partner during the COVID-19 lockdown and what came from their practice sessions
