Embracing All Styles Of Play Will Make You A Stronger Player And Teammate


In league tennis you never know who you may be paired with, so it’s important to learn how to play with different styles and personalities. I say embrace it by practicing all different styles of play — especially if it’s not your own. This will make you a stronger player, partner and teammate.

In this clip, the server is prefers to stay at the baseline where she can hit her groundtrokes deep and with heavy topspin, and her partner at net has an aggressive style with strong volleys. Even though I advocate 2 up or 2 back, a.k.a “the wall”, I believe 1 up, 1 back will “serve” this team well! Remember there’s always an exception to the rules!
