More about the Back Court Boast
- The biggest mistake many players make when trying to retrieve the ball from the back of the court, is to back themselves up against the back wall in an effort to get behind the ball.
- This can result in a missed shot, a cramped swing, a broken racket and perhaps all three! When attempting to return the ball from very deep in the court, stand with a wide open stance which positions you across and facing the back corner.
- Give yourself some room to ensure you can get as full a swing as possible - you may have to restrict the radius of the stroke at times.
- Swing through the ball into the side wall, swinging under the ball slightly, maintaining an open racket face.
