Hi all, I've been playing for about 2-3 years now and I love the fact I've finally found the sport for me! I'm currently trying to join a league as I've been playing the same couple of players for a while now and I need a step-up in competition as I win every time (i don't mean to sound big headed!). I played in a friendly night with some league players last night and I learnt a few things... I can beat players that don't have good technique regardless if they are fit. I was found out by a league 1 player (there's 6 leagues) I was beaten 9-7, he told me that I have a very unusual style and that I have a very good touch (drops) and acurate but I need to put on another 20mph on to my other shots! I was very grateful for the advice and he even pointed out a couple of basic errors in my game but I find if I hit the ball too hard I lose accuracy and position. I like to keep a rally going for an extra couple of shots by giving my opponent a 'tempter', as in I could win the point now or make him run extra to wear them down.
Should I change my game to hit harder but lose accuracy, or should I keep working on my own 'unusual' style? Does anybody else have (or had) a predicament like this? What did you do?How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
