Tennis and pickleball players benefit from repetition.
If a player has trouble with serves, they’ll focus on serves and hammer on them until they get it.
Same for backhands. Or returns. You get the idea.
There is one thing every player should put reps into but very few do.
Mindfulness adds sharpness to every part of your game. And, just like serves and backhands, you can get better at it the more you do it.
