How To Build A Point In Doubles Tennis


Whether you’re playing doubles or singles, the development of a point is crucial to keeping unforced errors down and presenting the best shot possible for the winning shot. Building a point means knowing when and where to hit the ball with a high percentage chance of not making an error.

The development of a point should be instinctive. A “feeling” of knowing where to hit according to your court position and always being one shot ahead. For example: If you hit an angle, you open the middle for the next shot.
