Doubles Tips

  1. Doubles is a team sport. Doubles is not a spectator sport where one partner plays while the other watches. Remember to keep on your toes -- there is always somewhere you need to be when your partner is hitting the ball. Don't stand still!

    2 Keep hitting to your opponents' weakness!! Over and over again! Use the pre-match warm up to try to identify your opponents' weakness, talk to your partner and strategize on how to exploit them!
    3 Placement in doubles is better then power. Everyone loves to fire off a strong shot, but focusing on placement will win you more points.
    4 Forget a bad point once it is over. Remember, the most important point is the next one you are going to play.
    5 Talk to your partner during the point only when the ball is on your side. Use words like..Yours! Switch! Bounce it!
    6 No one wins or loses because of their partner. Both players share the blame in defeat and the Joy in WINNING!

Most of all -- HAVE FUN TOGETHER
