  1. Keep your competitors at bay

Make sure that your shots are long enough to keep your competitors at the baseline. Serve them with long shots and try to keep them in No Man’s Land (The area between Non-volley line and baseline).

  1. Aim at the Center Line

Aiming at the middle/center line arouses confusion in three ways:

  • A right-handed player will have to hit the shot by twisting his/her hand backward.
  • Middle aimed shots go over a lower part of the net which arises confusion that the opponent has fired a dink.
  • If communication is not established with the partner, a middle shot will ignite incertitude between the partners about “Who will hit it?”
  1. Communication

An effective conveyance of ideas and strategies in the middle of the game is the actual key to success. Miscommunications may often push you to the brink of failure. A good way of establishing good communication is, by thinking that you and your partners are on the two ends of a rope. Hence, this will lead you to synchronize and match yourself with your partner’s moves.

  1. Mine and Yours

Get frequented with the words ‘mine’ and ‘yours’. When a hit comes to your side, shout to your partner, in the following ways:

  • If it comes to your side and you are sure to hit it, shout “MINE”
  • Else shout “YOURS”

In this way, your partner will know when to buckle up and move forward.

  1. Perfect your dink shot

A dink shot is a shot which is fired from No Man’s Land and it lands up to your opponent’s Nonvolley zone. While your opponent moves to hit the dink shot, you must align yourself with the non-volley line. What follows is a series of dink shots, (a game of vigor, mind, and agility) among the four players. This will give you the position of force majeure and will duress the opponent to make a false move, which will be advantageous.

  1. Simple and Sober

Over-complicated shots may result in an ineffective judgment and foul play. This may endanger your chances at winning. Make sure your shots are simple yet endearing enough to attack the opponent’s weak point.

  1. Make your third shot stellar

Your first shot is when you serve the ball. Make sure you serve it aiming at No Man’s Land. The second shot is played when your opponent hits it back to you. This shot is usually the middle shot. The third shot governs the play. This shot is very important and decides if you will greet flying colors or will succumb to failure. This shot must be a drop shot into the no volley zone (dink shot).
