The duo from Wauwatosa focused on doubles concepts in preparation for summer and high school try-outs in fall.  Focus areas addressed were serving on angles, serve-receive, attacking & 3 contact drills.  The entire session was built around individual and team goals. 


Additional coaches and players were also brought in to provide a competetive environment and doubles strategy within the game.  Kudo's to both girls and their parents for providing a detailed session around their busy schedules to further their skills and consistency as partners!  if interested in indoor or sand doubles training, contact Dave Pauers (262-707-1003).
