Hi guys.

In a doubles match, should the non-serving partner stand beside or behind the server to maximize the chance for an effective return? At what distance?

Hi Kelvin,

I think the principle to think about is that the no server should stand as close to a good central position at the table as they can to play the next ball.  It is important that you are giving the server enough space to serve properly but then get as close to that central position as you can.

For our Premium members we do have a specific video on Doubles Strategy covering this as well as other strategies in doubles.
