  3. The third thing that you should do is make sure that you protect your self from the sun. You should were sunscreen ( don't forget to replay every now and then ), an wide rimed hat to protect your face and eyes, and drink plenty of water to keep up your energy.
  4. The forth thing that you should do is keep track of your surroundings. You need to know were everyone is by the time you hit the ball. You should look behind you every time to see were your other players are. This can prevent ingeries from the ball or the club.
