Pick your angles

A brilliant article on this years London Open has been published at greenworm.net.

They describe the sport from a newcomer’s perspective with a refreshing amount of insight, and they manage to avoid all the classic clichés.

The key to the game is not in speed, but in skills and control. It’s not a big court so being able to pick your angles, maintain uprightedness, and perform deft slice shots and smacking power drives while leant over and feathering the brakes off-handed is going to help you more than the acceleration of a demon. You can be hyper aggressive, but the targets themselves reward accuracy over strength.

Do head over to their site to read the whole thing, it’s worth it, they have a little photo gallery of the event as well.  More articles like this please!
