Tip of the week: Serve and Attack . . . Almost Always

(By Larry Hodges) Tip of the week: Serve and Attack . . . Almost Always When serving, don’t look for a ball to attack.

However, sometimes a “weakness” can be a strength, plus (perhaps more importantly), if you use a weakness over and over, it might become a strength, or at least […]

Tip of the week: Are You a 10-8 or an 8-10 Player?

(By Larry Hodges) Tip of the week: Are You a 10-8 or an 8-10 Player? Some players play best when their back is to the wall – when they are down 8-10, they come alive and play like champions. Others are best when they are ahead and have more confidence in going for their shots […]
