Hi Jeff and Alois
At office we usually play doubles, and many rallies end soon due to low-quality stroke or just missing the ball. That often happens because a player does not get into a good position in time. Any ideas?
In doubles moving is a critical part. You should move as soon as you play your stroke to allow your partner as much time as possible to get into position.
Make sure though that you are not moving before you have completed your stroke because that will compromise the quality of your own stroke.
While your partner is playing their stroke, also make sure you are moving to as close to the centre of the table as you can to allow yourself the best opportunity to get position.
