    Thanks Jorge,
    I run several adult leagues at my club. All of the leagues except for 1 are round robin doubles. 90% are women, more than half are over 60.
    I think the atmosphere will cheer up after I make your suggestion a league rule to at least smile, jave some eye contact and have fun.
    Thanks again,

    It looks so ODD when you see the non communication!! and then the UNSAID’s have a mind of their own between the so called ‘partners’!

    What to do BETWEEN 1st and 2nd serves or even 1st and 2nd returns?

      Between Serve (or returns) I suggest no contact between partners. Could interrupt the partner’s flow and focus.

    I love it. I’ve played with too many “silent, no contact” partners, and felt “He probably thinks it all my fault”. And the match goes downhill.
    We all need a little support and love, esp. when we lose a point with a mis-hit!
    My question is: Is there a time limit on how much chat/planning the team can do between points.
    Love the jog back to the net position by the server’s partner

      I think the entire process can be done in 10-15 seconds max.
