Another rule change designed to the improve the sport concerns the pre-match warm-ups. Administrators and pundits alike have been searching for ways to speed up the sport and they have a logical place to shave off some time when it comes to the warm-ups. Players will now be expected to meet at the net in a more timely fashion and adhere to the chair umpire's command when “time” is called or face a hefty financial penalty. The match is the main event after all so if any unnecessary dillydallying can be cut so much the better.
Warmup equipment: Once again you don't want to step onto the court for your match with cold muscles and without being warmed up. A jumprope can help get your legs ready while a resistance band is great for warming up your arm and shoulder. A lot of players even keep a football in their bag to throw around between matches. Tossing a football around is especially good because it replicates and helps improve your service motion.
