  1. Should I hit a high lob, before it lands or after it bounces? Thanks

  2. Would love to see video about switch hitting and playing as a leftie. Stacking is too confusing and Alot of righties don’t know how to play the center ball when both forehands are on the outside of the court. Thanks

  3. After hitting the ball, when can one enter the kitchen whether deliberately or because of momentum? I have been told that if after hitting the ball either you or your partner step into the kitchen before the opposing team has played the ball then it is a foot fault. Even if the ball landed in the opponent’s court and they swung and missed the ball, it is a foot fault on your team. Is this true?

    • Hi Frank! It looks like you have a lot of wrong information. Here are some facts. 1. Kitchen foot faults have nothing to do with the opposing team. 2. The only person who counts is the person hitting the ball – not the partner who is not hitting the ball. 3. If momentum causes you to step into the kitchen, it’s immediately a foot fault and has nothing to do with the opposing team. 4. If you hit the ball and regain your balance outside the kitchen, you can immediately step into the kitchen and has nothing to do with the opposing team. Please watch this video to help make it clearer: and good luck!!!
