Tip 7: Doubles Court Positioning When Returning Serve

If you are the net player and your partner is returning serve you should stand close to the T around the service line. This is to cover the middle between yourself and your partner if the opposite net player intercepts the return of serve. Standing too close to the net will leave a big gap between you down the middle for the net player to hit in to. If your partner does return the ball cross court you can then close into the net.
