Anyway, this is what I do if I can't find any partners.

Thanks for posting vil. Nice fluid strokes imo. Very instructional for me. I would eventually like to closely approximate the way you hit the ball. Maybe that's not possible. But worth shooting for I think. Enjoyed your vids. How old and what NTRP competitive level are you?
