If I hit consistently hit OHBH slice shots, people will just come to the net on me. They will pound the backhand, preferably with their forehand until they get a short ball which will give me little time to respond, likely with a weak sitter, and then put away the volley.

If you have people that always slice their backhands, I recommend working on your volley and approach shot.
