I made a visit to Auburn Regional Park Pickleball Courts for the very first time this Sunday, July 12th, 2015. By chance, the famous Prem Cardot, known as “The Pickleball Guru” was there. A group of us humble asked him to play a game with us. It was very enlightening to partner with Prem Cardot. I was amazed on his control and handling of every ball. Most of his shot were shot and even on winning he only hit with just enough pace to place the ball. I think a lot of new players choose impulsive power over strategic placement.
