Top pros have shared with me what has taken other players decades of playing to fully understand…

And I am just going to give it to you and help compress time…

AWAKEN YOUR PICKLEBALL POTENTIAL WITH WEAPONS AND A SOFT GAME WITH A FOCUS ON RAISING YOUR PICKLEBALL IQ TO ANOTHER LEVEL

Step #1

EnergizeYour Body

Pickleball players often have difficulty dealing with their emotions on the court.

This hinders them from reaching 100% of their true playing potential.

Some players suppress emotions until it leads to anxiety or decreased performance.

We provide “state-changing” tools to reprogram your game for enhanced skill and connection.

Reduce stress impacting focus and increase natural feel-good neurotransmitters.

Experience more focused play, stronger connections, and peak performance.

Enter a flow state in your game like never before.

Step #2

EvolveYour Mind

In the realm of pickleball, we recognize the mental aspect is crucial, comprising 30%, 50%, or even 90% of the game.

However, the pivotal question is: What proactive steps are you taking to enhance your mental fitness for optimal performance?

The moment you embark on the journey of mental fitness, you unlock the potential to elevate your game to unprecedented levels.

It's the transformative juncture where you discover the nuances of improvement by adopting a fresh perspective.

As this understanding takes root, you'll find yourself propelled toward enhanced mental fitness. The awareness of perceiving the game differently becomes a catalyst for your progression, guiding you to perform at your absolute best on the pickleball court.

By participating in our Pickleball Pro Workshops and Pickleball Pro Vacations, you'll eradicate restrictive beliefs and be equipped with the necessary tools.

This empowerment process will elevate your Mental Pickleball IQ, enabling you to chart your unique course for improvement immediately.

Step #2

EvolveYour Mind

Step #3

Execute WithYour Ability

Many times, we go and play Pickleball, but don't improve our Pickleball level or at a faster rate that we would like.

We get stuck making the same mistakes week after week.

With PICKLEBALLOS, you will discover how to drill properly with the right strategy and tactics to use.

When you grasp that your decisions on the court can drastically improve your game, it will be an eye awakening experience.

You will realize that you have had the answer all the time and we will help get you realigned.

You will walk away with a better structured game that makes you feel confident in your decisions and improved play.

Instead of being reactive, you become proactive.

Once you recognize the power of effective systems and making the right decisions, you're prepared to implement the PICKLEBALLOS, unlocking unparalleled achievements on the pickleball court.

By implementing the 3E Methodology it’s not just that you’ll be a better pickleball player, but also you’ll have true mastery on or off the court, over MIND, BODY and ABILITY…

How to Create a DIY Pickleball Court Anywhere

May 17, 20246 min read

Introduction 

Imagine having the freedom to play pickleball whenever and wherever you want – whether it's in your backyard, at a local park, or even on a tennis court. With a little creativity and know-how, you can transform any space into a pickleball paradise. 

In this guide, we'll show you how to create a DIY pickleball court using tape and a portable net, allowing you to enjoy the game wherever your heart desires. From marking out the court dimensions to setting up the equipment, we've got you covered. 

Let's dive in and turn your pickleball dreams into reality!

Quiz

The Versatility of DIY Pickleball Courts

The beauty of DIY pickleball courts lies in their versatility and accessibility. With the right materials and a bit of ingenuity, you can create a court virtually anywhere, opening up a world of possibilities for pickleball enthusiasts. Whether you're looking to practice your skills, host a friendly game with friends, or participate in impromptu matches while traveling, a DIY court allows you to enjoy the game on your own terms. 

Let's explore how to bring your vision to life.

Step 1: Choose the Location and Surface

The first step in creating a DIY pickleball court is selecting a suitable location with a flat, level surface. While traditional pickleball courts are typically built on asphalt or concrete, you can also use other surfaces such as grass or compacted soil. If you're opting to use a tennis court as your playing surface, ensure it's clean and free from debris, with no major cracks or damage that could affect gameplay.

Step 2: Mark Out the Court Dimensions

Once you've chosen your location, it's time to mark out the dimensions of your pickleball court using tape. 

Here's how to do it:

  1. Measure and mark the outer boundaries of the court using chalk or marking paint. For doubles play, the court should measure 20 feet wide and 44 feet long, while for singles play, it should measure 20 feet wide and 22 feet long.

  2. Use masking tape or painter's tape to create the boundary lines of the court, including the baseline, sidelines, and non-volley zone (kitchen). Ensure the lines are straight, evenly spaced, and clearly visible to players.

  3. Double-check your measurements and adjust the tape as needed to ensure accuracy and symmetry. Once you're satisfied with the layout, press down firmly on the tape to secure it in place and prevent it from peeling up during gameplay.

Step 3: Set Up the Portable Net

With the court dimensions marked out, it's time to set up the portable net.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Place the portable net in the center of the court, aligning it with the baseline and ensuring it is taut and properly tensioned.

  2. Adjust the height of the net to regulation height, which measures 34 inches at the sidelines and 36 inches at the center. Most portable nets come with adjustable settings to accommodate different playing conditions.

  3. Secure the net in place using the built-in stakes or anchors provided with the net. Ensure the net is stable and securely anchored to prevent movement or instability during play.

Step 4: Enjoy Your DIY Pickleball Court

Congratulations, you've successfully created your very own DIY pickleball court! Now it's time to enjoy hours of fun and excitement with friends, family, and fellow pickleball enthusiasts. 

Whether you're honing your skills, hosting a tournament, or simply enjoying a casual game, your DIY court provides endless opportunities for enjoyment and camaraderie. 

So, grab your paddle, gather your friends, and let the games begin!

Using Tape and Portable Nets on a Tennis Court

If you're playing pickleball on a tennis court, you can still create a temporary pickleball court using tape and a portable net. 

Here's how to do it:

  1. Follow the same steps outlined above to mark out the court dimensions using tape, ensuring you adhere to the regulation size for pickleball courts.

  2. Position the portable net in the center of the court, aligning it with the baseline and adjusting the height to regulation height as specified earlier.

  3. Secure the net in place using the built-in stakes or anchors provided, ensuring it is stable and securely anchored to the ground.

  4. Use additional tape to mark out the non-volley zone (kitchen) and any other boundary lines as needed, ensuring clear visibility and adherence to pickleball rules and regulations.

  5. Once everything is set up, you're ready to enjoy a game of pickleball on the tennis court!

Court Dimensions

For reference, the regulation dimensions of a pickleball court are as follows:

  • For doubles play: 20 feet wide and 44 feet long

  • For singles play: 20 feet wide and 22 feet long

These dimensions should be adhered to when marking out your DIY pickleball court to ensure compliance with official rules and regulations.

Conclusion

Creating a DIY pickleball court is a rewarding and enjoyable project that allows you to bring the excitement of the game to any location. Whether you're playing in your backyard, at a local park, or on a tennis court, the process is simple and straightforward with the right materials and guidance. 

By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can create a pickleball oasis that provides endless hours of fun, fitness, and friendship for players of all ages and skill levels.

    Most portable pickleball nets come with adjustable settings that allow you to raise or lower the net to regulation height. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific guidance on adjusting the net height for pickleball play.

  3. What type of tape should I use to mark out the court dimensions?
