KEEP THOSE GYM FLOORS CLEAN & SAVE YOUR COURT SHOES JUST FOR PICKLEBALL

Do you know that many facilities encourage and mandate changing your shoes at the indoor court facilities?

Wear and tear on gym floor surfaces from street shoes is epic. And wear and tear on your court shoes on the street is epic, too!

Help your facility and your pickleball shoes by changing at the courts.


TMPC Swag – Members will be styling soon!

Members want to be looking good on the courts. Our recent fundraiser was a big success and over 80 articles of TMPC swag will be arriving soon.

Big thanks to those of you who ordered TMPC Swag. Board members will be in touch as soon as the merchandise arrives. There has been a slight delay due to COVID-19 affecting stock, but hopefully you will be pretty soon!

Tuesdays Tips – Mid Court Blocking and Play The Point Out

Third and final in a series of great videos with Simone Jardime on Block Volley Drills.

This week Simone Jardim and Eddie mix it up with volleys and mid court blocks into the kitchen. Then do the same but then play out the point.

Mid court block drill starts about 2/3’s of the way into the video. Remember this drill benefits both players. Not only do you benefit from working on your blocks, you will benefit from working on your drives and punches.

Click here to start the video right at  Mid Court Block Drills.

Try playing out the point with all these drills. Make a game of your drills and play against your drill partner to 5 points. Then change to another drill or mix up partners by going cross court or rotating.

Watch the full video below.

* Minimize your movement. * Out in front.  * Catch that ball out in front. * The less you do with the paddle the better. * Contact point out in front with that push. * Soft hands. *
