We encourage players to think about tactics during the match warm-up. However, we know that a lot of players, particularly when starting out, aren’t too keen to think about tactics or how they will overcome their opponent.
Think about tactics – answer one simple question
This is a critical skill develop and to start off you just need to think about a simple question, which is your opponent’s weakest side? is it the forehand or backhand?
Use the five minute match warm up to observe your opponent’s play and see which is their stronger side and which is their weaker side. When you are playing the match you can make sure you are getting the ball on to that side as much as possible.
