Rippa Rita`s championship squash tip
Have you ever felt there was just a couple of things that made the difference during a match? Little things can mean alot.  If you are saying "I'll win next time". 

There are a few things you can do that will definitely help.
  • Make some notes (use a diary) about the match, noting the things that you would like to be able to do next time you play that person.
  • Take away your opponent's strengths.
  •  Hers's an example:
    •  If one of the important points were return of serve was being intercepted by my opponent on the backhand side, this is how you can practise on this one aspect.
  • Get a team mate to serve lob serves, and practice:
    • Returning the ball in either of the front corners.
    • Lob returns to length that are tight, and high, and land in the back corner. (This return must force the opponent to the back of the court).
    • A variety of returns, which will keep the opponent guessing, and discourage or delay the opponent from stepping across so early to volley.
  •  Refer to the Diary notes, specifically applying to this opponent, before playing that person next time; then, set an overall game plan.
  • What might appear to be an ideal serve against one opponent may not work as well against another and so on.
  • That is what makes the game so interesting
  • Tip: By returning the ball to alternate corners of the court, it will stop the opponent dominating the centre of the court.
