My Favorite Response to Slammers

In doubles, if you hold your paddle loosely when you’re right at the kitchen line, and you’re facing a slammer, just let the hard-driven ball die against your paddle and fall into your opponent’s kitchen. If the ball is coming so low that it almost skims the net, you might angle your paddle upward just a little bit.

They hate this, because they are almost always too far back to respond and it makes them look silly when they try.

It’s not an easy trick to learn, but well worth practicing.
