Playing Tip: Let It Go

If only those high fast balls weren’t so tempting!

Most of us love them, but we must learn to let them go. When you are at the kitchen line, and a ball is sailing at you shoulder high or more, it is probably going out.

There is less than 15 feet of court space behind you. If you let it go, your team will win the rally. If you hit it anyway, there is a chance you will miss the shot. Even if you make a good shot, you have simply given your opponents another chance to extend the rally.
