HOW TO GET TO YOUR CORRECT POSITION (Part II) - receiving service

Getting to the correct position after serving is a doddle, because you have time to switch just after the ball has been served.

Getting to the right position whilst you are receiving service is harder, because you has to see where the ball is going, play it if necessary, then move to the right position, ever mindful that the opposition might chuck it back as you are moving into position.
