    I notice some people are recording their games for reviewing afterwards. Does anyone here have any suggestions on how to do it properly so that I can analyse my game afterward? I play at a facility where there's only one floor so I can't mount something at a higher elevation point for that overhead camera view.

    tripod + camera/camcorder @ 720p is sufficient.

    Putting the camera on the floor is not great, but you can still get a lot of useful information from videos from that location.

    Get a wideangle attachment that attaches to the lens.

    mount it on a gorillapod and find a convenient spot to clamp it.

    exactly, it's not ideal, but it's not worthless either.
