HOW TO REDUCE UNFORCED ERRORS:
In Pickleball, among other racket sports, reducing the amount of errors is crucial during competition play.
There are multiple ways to reduce your total unforced error count. First off, when in doubt, play towards the center of your opponents court. The net is lowest in the center by two inches, so hitting through the middle of the net will reduce sideline errors and risk of shot.
In PB you can only score points while you are serving. So when you are the serving team, be extra aggressive. Since that's the best opportunity to score points.
While on the receiving side, your best strategy is to play more conservatively. Any error while on the receiving side will add points for your opponents. Play safer, making the opposition to come up with good shots in order to score points. Doing whatever it takes to force the serving side to hit that extra ball.
