More on Lob Serve

The lob serve is a soft serve which falls or drops into the back corner.

  • Adjust width to suit individual stance and technique.
  • Shoulders point to the target on the front wall.
  • Open racket face gives height on the front wall.
  • Ball toss to be higher than the shoulders so the racket face can get under the ball.
  • A good lob serve will hit the side wall behind the service boxes, before the receiver can intercept it.
  • Try a backhand serve from the forehand side box as a change - remember to adjust the target points.
 Target Forehand side lob serve
  • Aim high (about .5 metre)  on the front wall about centre of the front wall.
Target Backhand side lob serve
