is a racquet sport that can be played individually against a single opponent
(singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). The objective of
the game is to play the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to
play a good return. The opponent who is unable to return the ball will not gain
a point, while the opposite opponent will.
The players (or teams) start on opposite sides of the net. One player is designated the server, and the opposing player is the receiver. The choice to be server or receiver in the first game and the choice of ends is decided by a toss before the warm-up starts. Service alternates game by game between the two players (or teams). For each point, the server starts behind the baseline, between the center mark and the sideline. The receiver may start anywhere on their side of the net. When the receiver is ready, the server will serve, although the receiver must play to the pace of the server.
Most beginners make the mistake by hitting the ball too low, directly into the net or too short if they do get it over. Therefore seeking professional help will ensure you learn the correct techniques with regard to hitting styles, various strategies and lots of variety in movement on the court.
