This is the fourth episode in a four-part series on doubles strategy. If you’ve never thought about strategy before or are new to doubles, this series will get you started and help you turn into a smarter, more effective tennis player.
Find out why you should be trying to get to the net in the first place, and the different goals we should have once we are at the net.

You’ll learn how and when to poach even if you’re not usually comfortable at the net in doubles.
