Most people think their choice of where to hit the ball is limited to one half of the court or the other. The best way to visualize the court is to divide it into three lanes. One lane down the middle and one on either side giving you three choices, or three lanes, to place the ball. Always know where you want to place the ball BEFORE you hit it.
At the 5.0 level you really have to protect all lanes because they can place a shot down a lane (or line) at any time.
So BEFORE you hit the ball, have a target, pick a lane and go for it!
