TENNIS TIP OF THE MONTH--SEPTEMBER

Hit Down the Middle for Doubles Success!!

 

The 'Middle’ in doubles is the area between the two players. By frequently attacking your opponent’s middle you increase your chances of winning the point for multiple reasons. First, hitting through the middle creates confusion between the two players. The net is lower down the middle and your court length is increased, therefore making it a very high percentage shot. Finally, when you hit down the middle you will decrease your opponent’s viable options making it easier to defend the court for the next shot.

Hit down the middle to solve the riddle!
