Line calls

One of the hardest parts of a non-umpired match is getting line calls right. It's much easier if you rigourously employ the rules: you call the ball on your side of the net. If you saw the ball out, it is out and your opponent has to accept it with good grace. But you have to be sure. If you are in any doubt, the ball is in! Do not play a let. Accept it and move on.
