Picked Pickleball Videos (PPV) is a select collection of pickleball videos from YouTube, Pickleball Central, and other pickleball sites on the web. Hundreds of pickleball videos were screened in order to “pick” those videos that are purely instructional or tutorial. You will find no videos of regional or national matches; these videos are not published for purely instructional purposes so they were excluded from PPV.


The videos in PPV are targeted to new players wishing to learn the basics of the game; intermediate players wishing to improve their skills; and advanced players wishing to learn the strategies of the game. The videos are numbered in sequence with lower-numbered videos for beginners and higher numbers for intermediate and advanced players. A table of video contents appears below.


PPV may be found as a channel on Vimeo. Vimeo is a website similar to YouTube – it allows users to make channels or albums of videos available to interest groups, such as pickleball clubs and pickleball players. Here is the link to PPV:
