More on Hard Serve

Key Points:

  • Start the serve with a full backswing
  • The hard serve resembles the serve of a tennis player.
  • Strike the ball slightly above head height.
  • Toss the ball relatively high and hit through the ball with an open face racket. Aim a racket head above the cut line.
  • Change your target points according to the strengths of your opponent.
  • Try to hit the side wall nick at the back of the service box.
  • Aim higher on the side wall for the strong volleyer
  • Hit it at or behind the opponent as a change (as a surprise).
  • The power serve should always hit the side wall except if aimed at or behind the opponent.
  • Move quickly to the T as your time is limited in comparison to the lob serve.
