Stické is played with standard lawn tennis racquets and low pressure balls in an enclosed court. The court is somewhat similar to a real tennis court in shape, but is smaller (about 78 feet by 27 feet) and different in construction. Play takes place using all the basics of lawn tennis and the same scoring system, with the addition of side and back walls. Players face each other over the net in pairs. As in real tennis, there is a penthouse, used throughout the game as a playing surface and on which the service has to land to start each point.
I have played most racket sports and this is totally different, squash players will get on fine, tennis players will have to get used to the ball coming at you from behind! The low pressure balls make the bounce and angles difficult to read so that one of the "rules" is not to apologise for any shot no matter how bizzare the bounce or spin.
You learn to laugh a lot at both your opponents,your partner and yourself, great time thanks to Ashley, Steve and Sam.
