1. Shift & move with the direction of the ball you, your partner, or your opponent hit, EVERY TIME.  Often a single step can make a huge difference.
  2. Hit your volleys with deliberate directional intent.
  3. Play aggressive and take some risks when you are queen/king, you are up 2 points, play like it.
  4. Be prepared and expect every ball to be returned, split step and go after every ball.
  5. Follow the ball onto your racket, and keep your head still until the shot has been played. This will improve your balance and consistency.
  6. Stay low.  Being low helps your balance, gives you more power & control, and helps you spring into action to cover more court.
  7. Do not be concerned with a win or a loss, Live Ball is NOT match play, it’s improvement play.
  8. Your USTA rating, your club team level or record, or even how much time you spend as queen/king doesn’t matter in cat assessments.  What matters is movement, having control of the ball, and effort.
  9. Practicing once or twice a week should allow you to maintain your current level, but if you are looking to improve you should aim to practice at least 3 times per week. 4 to 5 times a week will put yourself in an even better position to advance your game.
  10. Arrive on time.

Here is a good video on the subject of shifting as a team:  youtube.com/watch?v=C192pR9Ucg0

The more you include movement with the ball & directional intent in your Live Ball, the more match wins you will experience in your doubles matches.
