BMW Combo Doubles Tip # 3

“GRAND CANYON”—the zone of weakness over the center of the net created by a left-handed and right-handed doubles team when they come and have their backhands in the middle!  Good players can create offensive pressure by hitting clearing lobs through this zone.

High-backhand overheads are almost always weaker than smashes over the forehand side.
When playing a left handed and right-handed doubles team KNOW where their backhands are at the start of every point.  They are either “outside” or “inside”.  If “inside”, ATTACK “GRAND CANYON”!

The BMW Cruise Bike is a mixture of a beach cruiser and a trekking bike with a cushioned seat.
