Player is new to pickleball, learning scoring and rules. Players have a hard time playing games, as a rally is not sustainable yet. Occasionally miss the ball entirely..
Have played a few games and know how to score and know some of the basic rules. Learning how to serve and return consistently. Developing a consistent forehand.
Able to keep score and are familiar with the court positions for doubles play, but can still be reluctant to approach the net. Can sustain a short rally of 3 or more shots with players of equal ability Weak in their ready position and strokes but are working on improving them
Players can sustain longer rallies (4 or more shots each point) Can make easier volleys and use backhand more often but need work on stroke development. Start coming to the Non Volley Zone and become more aggressive in their play. Begins to use dinks and lobs but do not fully understand when and where they should be used. Serves become more consistent and working on making it accurate. Knowledge of the rules improves. Court coverage may be weak but improves consistently.
Players are fairly consistent on serve and return when hitting medium paced shots. Players demonstrate improved skills with all the basic strokes but lack accuracy and control when trying for direction, depth or power on these shots. They are using dinks and lobs on a regular basis as part of their game.
Players have achieved stroke dependability with directional control on most medium paced and some harder hit shots. They still need to develop more depth and variety with their shots but are exhibiting more aggressive net play. They anticipate their opponents shots and are developing teamwork in doubles. They start to use the third shot drop and mix play with dinks, soft shots, more pace, angles, and lobs.
