Doubles tennis “No man’s land” — are you there too often?
No man’s land is defined as the area in doubles or singles between the baseline and the service line. We find ourselves there occasionally having to hit an awkward half volley or very low volley.
In doubles, it’s important that you actually practice hitting shots from these positions so that you’re not totally confused when confronted with those shots. But more importantly, even though you may be there, don’t stay there. In singles or doubles either get back behind the baseline or get up to net in order to put yourself in a better position for a more comfortable shot.
