I think for learning, it would be better if you had someone to help train you... maybe perhaps rally with you or perhaps set some shots up :P thats how I learnt... The wall is only helpful for hitting it above the line, but in reality, the net is different depending on how far u stand and stuff :P

I either use the one in Stanley Park or David Lam Park. There's also one near the Stadium Skytrain Station and all weather field. I was thinkin of going out yesterday morning, until I saw the snow.

the wall is great for practice only if you have someone teach you a technique before you start. that way you can think about what they said and apply it consistently to the wall. once you grasp one part of it, get them to teach you something else and go back to the wall.

where you live near?
