  1. Greetings,
    I would like to see tips about singles strategy. Most of the videos and comments relate to doubles and ignore those of us who like singles competition.

  2. I would really like to see a lesson about drinking strategy (“drinking” — that’s what auto correct came up with. I’m a 5.0 when it come to drinking strategy.) What I meant to ask is for help with DINKING strategy — things like where you should place the ball and why, when do you go for a winner, when to go crosscourt vs. just playing to the opponent opposite you.

    • You are in luck Milt! We are coming out with a great video all about dinking and how to perform the best execution of this strategy. I will talk to Rusty about putting it in the schedule soon! Thanks for your input!

  3. I have made many between the legs shots over the years and have not really seen many other players do that. I admit that sometimes I do it just for fun but most times it is a reaction and it is a successful shot (I’ve hit winners). I have done it at kitchen line and on back line. I have also done the same with behind the back shots. I wonder if others have hit these shots. They can be useful shots sometimes.
