    The better players at my club employ this strategy most often. If you are patient and play it correctly, it’s an easy way to win points!

    Since I had been a fast pitch softball player my mindset is totally opposite than letting balls go. In softball you haul after every ball. Your video was a helpful way to reprogram myself! Thanks.

    I would take it one step further. Start calling those balls you see. If you are sure they are out, call no or out. If unsure call bounce it. This way your partner can play the bounce it ball if it is truly out. Watch the bounce it ball so you can call it out, because someone setting up and concentrating to hit a ball after running back for it, may not see if it is in or out. Being in the habit of calling out balls even when practicing letting them go, can only help your team communication when you get out on the court.

    As always your thinking and insight have me thinking more of my playing the game. I can’t wait for COVID-19 clears for me to play again. Reading the courts, your players, and strategic planning is very important. Thank you! Keep well and the tips flowing.

    I analyze the data by asking my partner if it was a ball I shouldn’t have played. I find it too painful to watch a ball land in behind me when I could have kept it in play or even possibly put it away.

    As a novice and beginner it is so tempting to try to go for the ball. A more seasoned player will be be able to read balls, and yes let those balls go. Sometimes you’ll be wrong and ball will fall in, but I think it’s an important strategy to not be knee jerk and hit everything and instead choose to let those balls fly!
