    Anybody ever play with a wall?

    Because I play with it everyday and I'm not really sure if its helpful.

    And I also don't have many people that are available to play with me :(

    well i did , a lot
    it could be useful if you're a beginner , but if not it could ruin your stroke so try to use it for warming up only , hope that helps ..

    occasionally, but not enough for it to do anything to my strokes

    Back then, when I was using it, I was very consistent. But then, I got used to playing with my friends on the court and... I just miss the wall. Just like looseswing, my strokes didn't change while playing on the wall since I don't get enough time to think of what I'm supposed to be changing since going against the wall is like going against a good net player, so everything is too fast paced for me. But I was concentrating on getting the ball over the line and deep.

    its good for volleys. the key is not to muscle the ball, just get into a good, zen rhythm.

    I find it best for working footwork and timing, thats about it.

    :( I don't like playing against the wall. The harder I hit, the harder it comes back. I don't think it's that useful because you don't know the depth you are hitting at... but that's just me.

    I think the wall is great. It makes you work harder because you have to create your own pace.

    you can also practice you serves on the wall. this is if you have the lines painted on the wall and if there is enough space. when i have a tourney at the club i go to i go the the wall to warm up my serves. i just go through the motion and crank my serves for at least 5-10 mins.
