Rippa Rita`s championship squash tip
A simple reason is, "let your opponent make the mistake".  By referring to making mistakes, that is, hit the tin, serve faults, etc. during play. Mistakes make for shorter rallies, and do not give opportunity to test your tactics, skills or fitness levels. Here are some hints that will help decrease your errors during a match:

When driving:
      • (a) aim higher on the front wall;
      • (b) opening the racket face will give height.
 When boasting:
      • (a) aim higher on the side wall;
      • (b) open the racket face, and swing under the ball;
      • (c) lunge to get a lower base of support.
When volleying:
      • (a) reach up to strike the ball;
      • (b) swing downwards, yet keep the racket face open.
 For drop shots:
      • (a) open the racket face;
      • (b) swing with a slicing action;
      • (c) lunge to get under the ball and feel balanced.
      • (d) aim above the "tin/board".
 Be patient and wait till the ball is "loose", eg in the middle of the court, before going for a "winner".
 In the early stages of the match move the opponent around to "sus" out their skill level and fitness level.
 Gradually ease into the match.
Feel balanced before playing touch shots.
TIP: Errors early in the match tend to destroy your confidence and boost your opponent.squash game squash extras How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
