    Video of me hitting

    Yup. Exactly. You try playing in 96 degree weather and 90% humidity at noon with a shirt on. Good luck.:) I think so too. I'll try and cut it down a bit.

    No I didn't have to climb the fence. As you can see on the second video, the ground is raised above the courts and there's just a normal size fence.

    Video of me hitting

    There is a balcony type of thing (you can see it to the right of the court on the second video), but I set the tripod on top of the fence and secured it to the fence with string and guard tape--extremely makeshift and not very sturdy lol.
