Closing down the net with the 1-2 step and playing 'one point at a time'

A simple 1-2 footwork technique today that will help you 'close down the net' on some of those easier balls!


Here are a few questions to reflect on around the ability to 'play one point at a time' and perhaps draw some parallels for our lives right now.

  1. If you knew that you are a weak competitor, and that it is not alright to make mistakes and lose points, how would you play a match?
  2. If you knew that you are a strong competitor, and it is alright to make mistakes and lose points, how would you play a match?
  3. If you knew that you are known by players, coaches, parents and others for being exceptional at being able to play one point at a time, what do you notice about the way you approach competition?
  4. If you knew that people are not judging or evaluating you, how would you play a match?

Why don't we just treat today as one point?  Completely disconnected from the past and in no way linked to tomorrow.  Just play.

If you fight for 'everyball' you can fight for everyday.

One.....day.....at.....a......time!
