If driving in traffic, you’re all out on the field together but it’s not a team game. And it’s not a competition ! Some are more agile or experienced than you, and you’re different shapes and sizes.
Play the long game. Don’t be tempted by short-term wins; keep you and your equipment in good “game-ready” shape. Know the space around at all times, and what the lines on the pitch mean.
Nimble footwork and balance, and good hand/eye coordination, will give you comfortable, rapid progress. Keep alert to the other players around you and anticipate their next moves. And never gamble against an opponent.
