Here you can find the video about advanced tactics we mention in the video, definitely check this one out as well:

For a beginner, tactics in doubles and mixeddoubles can be a little overwhelming. Where to stand and how to move on court, where to attack and what to do during the serve? The bad news: There is no easy answer to these questions and a lot depends on your level, skills and especially the situation you are in. The good news: there are certain guidlines and rules of thumb that should help you to be a lot more successful right from the beginning and to get a better idea of how to play doubles and mixed doubles. In the video I am going to cover them and I am super happy that Australia’s top shuttler Gronya Somerville is joining me!

Here a short overview about the different sections and topics in the video:
0:00 Introduction
0:53 Basic Positioning
2:00 Fight for the Lift
3:53 Where to Attack
5:11 Defensive Position
6:10 Block and follow up
7:10 Moving in Defense
8:03 Outro

—Additional Info———————————————————————-
Please keep in mind, that the players in the video are world class athletes, and some of the shots and tactics they use may differ in some cases from the basic advice. Elite players have a great awareness of the situation they are in and have a good understanding of their partners actions. That’s why they sometimes can play shots that may go against the basic guidleines or position a little different but still score points. Anticipation and intuition about what will happen next helps them to do so and breaking out of certain patterns can be essential to win on that level.
