    If you want to play singles like the pros, you play with the singles sticks. How many of you do?

    By singles sticks, do you mean racquets?
    Or are you talking about the net?

    The sticks that hold the net up to 3'6 where the doubles alley starts. Makes it even tougher to serve out wide and approach up-the-line but is the regulation way to play singles. We are all playing singles with a doubles net otherwise.

    If they are there I'll use them, but I'm not going to bring my own(especially to a club or tourney).Although I do have some and I've asked an umpire to bring a replacement set when one broke(becuase we'd already been playing with them and by not having them might give either of us an unfair advantage becuase of the changel).
