COACHING POINTS

Players to concentrate on their own feed, and not be distracted by what is happening around them.

Good quick footwork to have feet in the correct position to play the correct shots.

Lots of energy. Encourage the players to keep up the high intensity.

Return shots from players can be played anywhere in the court.
