    For a college recruiting video, would taking video of an actual match be bad to use or would it be better to show all of the strokes and then a little bit of point play at the end of the video?

    I'd say about a 15 minute total video. With an introduction, couple minutes of strokes to show technique and then the remainder of the time should be devoted to match play. Good luck with your search.

    tip when you play a match, make sure you are playing someone at your level or higher, coaches would prefer to not see you destroy some over-matched player since it shows nothing. Allows the coaches to see you player pressure points.

    There are a lot of videos on youtube, look at those to get a good idea how to go about it.

    My suggestion would be 5 minutes max. Coaches are busy. Doesn't take them long to see from a video whether an in-person look would be worthwhile

    Yeah the one college coach Ive spoke to said all he needs is 12 points. 3 oj each side returning and recieving and possibly some doubles or volleys to know if he wants a player.

    Don't have loud music. Make sure you can hear the ball being hit.
