In doubles you have more tennis court to cover, including the alleys. At the same time you also have a partner. Make sure you move as a team. Let's say that you're ready at the baseline and your opposing team has one player at the net and one player at the baseline then hit your return to the player at the baseline. This is the high percentage shot that has a great chance of going in. If you hit a high shot anywhere near the person at the net they will attack it with an offensive volley. Mix things up a bit and hit shots during a point that sometimes go directly at the net player. You can sail a lob over their head, or hit a strong winner down the alley, or hit an intense angle. This is the lower percentage shot, but it is good to put it in the game to keep your opponents on their toes.

Single tennis matches differ from doubles only in that it is played with two people, one on each team. Where a doubles tennis match is played by four people, two on each team. The other difference is they may bounce the ball twice before hitting it rather than just once.

An alley is a narrow street or passageway, or an establishment where bowling is played. In tennis, it is the extra area between the tramlines which is used for doubles matches.

Quite a few cities have tennis courts, where you are welcome to sit and watch games between amateurs. However, if you would like to watch professional tennis matches, you will need to look up a favorite tennis player and see where they are playing, and on what dates.
