Level 1 – Shot selection and tactical decisions for the baseliner.

This video shows the best way to be a good baseliner in the traditional formation of 1 up 1 back v 1 up 1 back. Apart from obviously keeping the ball over and in consistently cross court and not hitting to the net player the baseliner has 2 main jobs, to set up her partner by hitting a deep ball or to get to the net to join her. In order to get to the net the player has 2 options, to WAIT for the opportunity ie a shorter ball or to CREATE the opportunity by using a lob or high ball either cross court or down the line.
