Did you know that you can have a strategic serve? Did you know you have many options of how and where to serve? Some players and coaches think the serve is just a way to start play – soft lob in court and game on. There is lots of debate and philosophy on this topic, but I believe you need to understand—and embrace— the wide variety of options that you have when serving. Whether you need to be more cautious and just get it in, or you’re ahead in points and can risk a bit or you just need to change the rhythm there are great options available. The video links below show serves that should be a part of your repertoire; from the power serve Alex Hamner highlights to the high soft serve I show or of course follow my dad’s soft angle serve to further mix up your serving rhythm.

Happy Serving!
