I always say: If you can’t get there, you will never be able to hit it in the first place.
There is one question I have, this is one thing that has always stumped me. Since I am a singles player, I don’t know that much about doubles, but I am considering playing doubles sometime. My question is, what is back-to-back? because there is a layout where there is one player in the back and one in front, and there is a layout where the two players are side by side. Can you explain this to me?
Answer: back to back = offensive (player in the back smashing)
side by side = defending from enemy smashes (so you can cover all the court)
