HIT ONE OR THE OTHER
What do you do if you try to clear and stick and your opponent gets one partially hidden?
Well you try to get it out of course, but you MUST hit one or the other, the hide or the one you are chasing.
Missing both is the worst thing you can do; if you hit the hide your opponent will probably try to recover his block and we all know that isn’t the easiest thing to do!
“Don’t miss them both for goodness sake!”
Home court players should always have a decided advantage.
Some clubs have blocks they only used for tournaments, but if there’s a bad block they don’t know it until it’s too late and they lose their advantage.
It’s the same for rough court clubs; some of them wash the courts just before a tournament and that changes the speed of the courts negating the home court advantage.
For the life of me I don’t understand why a club would take the home court advantage away from their own players!
