More about positioning to play a boast

Ball has gone past

  • In this situation, the natural swing of the racket once the ball has gone past will take the ball into the side wall.
  • Adjust your stroke  to hit into the side wall

A deliberate shot as an attacking or tactical weapon

  • Position your feet so that a line drawn from toe to toe on either foot is the direction the ball is to be hit.
  • Alternatively, you can position yourself as you would a drive, but catch the ball later or deeper in the court.
  • Novice players will find the boast useful as they sometimes find it hard to hit to the front wall directly
