Here is a fun practice game. Kinda like "H-O-R-S-E" that you played at the street basketball hoop, except you WANT to earn the letters S-P-L-A-T. And you earn each letter by winning a rally off of each of the shots below.
S = Splat, P = Pinch, L = Line, A= Angle, ( cross court or wide angle) T= Ceiling ball
For example, if you win the rally by hitting a pinch kill, you earn a P. If you hit a wide angle that your opponent tries to rekill and skips, you get an A. If you hit a ceiling ball that your opponent shoots but skips, you earn a T. Who ever gets all the letters first wins. The fun is knowing what letters your opponent still needs and then over-covering that shot. (If you win the rally on a letter you already have, you just serve again.)
Heres some harder variations: You must earn your letters in order; or try rally scoring, every rally can give the server or returner a letter.
So you just broke a ball and the ref just threw down a new one. Hmm, if you are serving, its a good time for a high nick lob or an off-speed drive. The cold ball will not bounce exactly the same as the warm one you had just been playing with. Note to self: if you are receiving serve, pay extra attention to the ball's flight path.
