3 Essential Serves
At the recreational level (where most of us play every day) you need three different serves to be competitive. Each type serve offers you the flexibility to begin influencing the point right from the start. Master them before you start trying more technically difficult serves.
  • High/Soft Serve
  • Deep/Power Serve
  • Soft Angle Serve/also referred to as a cut/slice serve
