I sent a survey out to doubles players around the globe asking them a simple question.

What is your biggest problem on the doubles court?

The most common answer... net play strategy.

This Masterclass is your ultimate solution to that problem.

If you...

  • Lack confidence at the net.
  • Want to become a force at the net but don't know where to start.
  • Feel out of position, and are confused about what to do from the net.
  • Don't know when to poach (or how).
  • Are sick and tired of grinding out matches from the baseline.
  • Feel like you let your partner down by missing volleys...
  • Or worse, miss opportunities to finish the point from the net!

How to Become the Net Player You Want to Be


Here's what one student had to say...

Have you ever faced an opponent who always seems to know where to be at the net?

As the baseliner, they're unbelievably frustrating to play against because you can't get the ball by them to save your life!

This isn't some God-given natural ability or some secret magic that they have and you don't.

It's simply a combination of skill, knowledge, and mindset. The good news? It's 100% trainable!

I know because I've made the transition over the last decade. From timid, afraid, and lacking confidence to aggressive, dominant, and frustrating as heck to play against (opponents have actually come up to me after matches and told me this).

And it's the type of net player you're going to transform into throughout this Masterclass.

Here's what you'll learn

This Masterclass is broken up into four parts so you can tackle each issue holding you back separately.

Part 1: Principles of Net Play Strategy

  • Why should we even go to the net? I'm winning at the baseline just fine...
  • The crucial differences between active and passive net players.
  • Our #1 goal at the net... this is what so many doubles players get wrong.
  • Why covering the alley is not only a bad idea but a totally misunderstood concept.

Part 2: The Mindset of Dominant Net Players

  • If you aren't getting beat down the alley in every set, then you're doing it wrong.
  • Why being timid at net is letting your partner down way more than getting passed down the line.
  • How to read where the ball is going to cross the net.
  • The one thing I tell all my new doubles partners before the match. They never tell me to "cover the alley" after I tell them this.
  • Creating chaos, doubt, and uncertainty in the opponent's mind.
  • Exactly what to look at during the point (hint: it's NOT the ball!)

Part 3: Developing Net Skills

  • Drills you can do at home, with a doubles partner, or in your lessons to level up your volleys faster.
  • How to get faster reactions & develop cat-like reflexes at the net.
  • Why it's so important to pinpoint the types of volleys you need to work on.
  • The reason you need to add touch volleys & drop shots in your game.

Part 4: Net Knowledge

  • When & how to pinch, poach, fake, and yes... cover the alley.
  • How to communicate with your partner at the net.
  • Who should take the middle ball when you're both at the net?
  • Everything to consider when deciding who should cover the lob.
  • Specific tactics to use from the deuce & ad court that will crush your opponent's confidence.

Thank you so much for the suggestions and all your content! I have your e-book and your new course and listen to your podcast and have really learned so much from you.

My net game has gotten really good and my teammates and opponents have all commented on it...

Thank you again for everything you do!

Who is the Masterclass for?

Who This Course Is NOT For

This type of course isn’t for everyone. If any of the following describe you, then this is probably not a good fit.

  • You’re a beginner and don’t have the fundamental shots down yet.
  • You’re primarily a singles player, and not interested in doubles.
  • You primarily want help with technique - hitting cleaner volleys, or fixing your overhead. I do review technique in this course briefly, but primarily focus on drills, mindset, and strategy.
