Coaches CornerIn a new feature in the newsletter we will be adding some simple coaching tips that members can put into practice.
The Body ServeHow to use it1. A lot of people like to serve to the corners but serving straight at someone can be highly effective. It also means you are aiming for the biggest part of the box and reducing the chance of a missed serve2. Use this to "jam" your opponent...if they are not quick enough they will struggle to make a good swing and hopefully give you an error or even a soft short ball3. To really make it work you need pace on the serve or slicing it into someone's body is very effectiveHow to counter1. Fast feet! once you read the serve is coming at you make space for your return.2. Look to move to your stronger side..usually forehand for mostTry it out!
