Winning doubles matches

Winning doubles matches

  1. Communication - always talk to your partner, always encourage and always congratulate.
  2. Doubles is a team sport. When your partner is serving, stand just inside the service line, listen for ball contact and move in. This creates dynamic movement towards the ball, creates time and takes away the static position at the net.
  3. When your partner is receiving, look for where their return bounces. If the ball goes beyond the service line and is deep, move forward; if it bounces within the service box, stand your ground and watch the line.
  4. Doubles is about forcing errors. Few winners are hit due to lack of space, so force errors, make your opponents play shots.
