    Continental grip is key. It almost guarantees the ball will stay in.

    Senior doubles player here … I can’t wait to perfect THIS shot; lobs are the go-to shot for many of us 3.5 players.

    First of Marti’s instruction videos I’ve seen and I hope to see more. You guys are my go-to instructors and I’ve shared them to other players many times!

    Great video. I am a senior player and my opponents are always lobbing. This is helping and as I keep woring on it I should get better at retrieving their lobs.

    Great tip . Will definitely try tomorrow morning. Hope this is my Ha Ha moment after decades of not knowing how, especially as a short 5′. 2″ player. Too slow to turn. But will be helpful if I know that I still can make some play, even if I am late..

    Nice progression. Perfect for all players. However, my adrenaline fueled male players (all ages up to the 50’s) like to try to imitate the pros and hit a ‘tweener. Good luck with that! 🙂
