 1. The first rule is always practice against someone your equal or better. Try never to break it.

2. The second rule is to handicap yourself if there is no equal. Some methods are:

a) A point spot, or the opponent having to reach 15 before you get 100 points.

b) Time odds, as in chess, where you may never stop moving even between points and receiving service.

c) An implement disadvantage such as using a wood paddle against the racquet which automatically lowers the player one division.

3.
For stamina, play simultaneous where one of a string of players enters the court after each point. If there are five players on the opposing 'team' you will get one-fifth their rest.

4. Play opposite handed - It's surprising what you'll learn about your correct hand game, and the handicap opens a new league of competitor until you are their champion.

5.
Resistance training is the best method for any racquet, where resistance is weight. Add a few ounces of speaker wire braided around the frame, or wear ankle weights, or a weight vest with increasing increments of 5-40 pounds.
