One of my playing partners has a huge body, his arms are much longer than mine, and accordingly he has the upper hand. So would you please give me a piece of advice that could help me make him move from one side to the other, because he is the one who is doing that to me.

Thanks alot.

best regards.

Hi Mohamed,

The best way to deal with tall opponents is oplay to their middle.  This is more difficult for them than out wide because they need to more out of the way before hitting the ball.

When you play to the middle it also makes it more difficul for them to get angles to place you out wide.  Try this out and let me know if it works.
