Here is the second pattern to develop your ability to open court in this new series from George Zink. Based on twenty years of playing at high levels himself and developing high level junior players, these patterns include the entire range of shot making. Developing mastery of these patterns allows players to develop confidence for the right shot choices at the right moment to win points and matches.

This second pattern: three balls to the center, attack the ball off the court.

Special thanks to Tyler, Lindsay and Ben Zink for their masterful demonstrations of these patterns!
