I am now not sure that this kind of analysis is applicable to recreational play. The goals should be: injury prevention, effective strokes, enjoyment.
Injury prevention means having reasonable technique to avoid injuries.
Effective strokes means technique should not be glorified over winning, till the point of injury prevention. Recreational play is a dangerous land where good technique and winning are not necessarily coincident.
Enjoyment of the game and strokes and feel of the ball should be the prime motivation, without which the activity will come to a stop soon, as I have seen in many people.
