Make Sure the Background Isn’t Distracting

Larry Hodges Before beginning a match, check out the background. For example, many barriers have lettering only on one side, and often it has orange or yellow lettering, which is easy to lose a ball in. So turn the barrier around. Similarly, move anything in the background that is moveable that could be distracting. There are many cases of top players asking a spectator wearing white or orange garments to move out of their line of vision!
