Can you occasionally blast a return at the opposing net player to keep him off balance?
Can you return a short serve with a soft shallow return to draw the server in while you gain position at the net? Many servers do not like to go to the net -- this will surprise them.

Can you cover most of the lobs hit over your head with an overhead?
Can you volley from any depth from the net, not just when you are at the net?
Do you make quick clear line calls?
Are you comfortable playing in different positions, (i.e., both up, both back, up and back, Australian formation)?
Are you familiar with the Australian formation (server and server's partner both standing on the same side of the center line with the partner standing near the net, typically when serving to the ad-court)?
Can you at least occasionally serve and volley?
When you are on the baseline and you see that your partner is going to receive a weak shot, do you remember to get to the net?
When the point is over, do you return the ball by tapping it back allowing it to bounce serveral times before reaching the opponent?

When you or your partner hit a shot low and at the feet of your opponent, do you move forward ready to attack?
When you or your partner hit a weak high shot do you hold your position or move back to defend?
Do you come up to the net after you lob a ball successfully over your opponent's head?
This is a self-graded test.
Good luck on the court!
