Phil Metz does not play Pickleball competitively, but he does teach with one of the best-known professionals in the game, Simone Jardim. Today Phil talks about the importance of paddle position in developing fast hands.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why Phil doesn’t want to have a repeat of his tennis days in Pickleball
  • Why Simone Jardim invited Phil to a Pickleball clinic
  • Why he prefers to teach beginning and intermediate players rather than advanced students
  • How Phil and Simone developed such as great rapport
  • What it means to have fast hands and how to develop that skill
  • Why playing with better players doesn’t always make you better
