When facing strong returners it’s important to have a plan. Strong returners can make it very difficult for your team to score points and therefore very hard to win games.
Returners already start the point with the advantage due to the two bounce rule. The returning team always has the first opportunity to capture the net and establish a strong winning position.
Strong returners make a bad situation worse because it becomes that much harder to hit consistently good 3rd shot drops off of very well struck returns that put you or your partner in very challenging positions right away.
