Unfortunately when the opponent is in front, and located in the middle of the court, it can be difficult to get the ball past them. Sending your opponent to the back of the court will enable you to get out of the back of the court, and into the middle.

The center court is a good spot, why?

  • It gives you a chance to intercept your opponent's returns.
  • It is easier to recover shots, eg boasts or drop shots, that land in the front corners.
  •  It keeps your opponent on the defensive.

How can I move the player who is in front:-

  • a) Hit the drives close to the side wall.
  • b) Hit the lobs/floats higher so the opponent cannot reach them; or
  • c) Boast or volley boast to take the opponent forward.

The back of the court is a defensive position, even though it might feel safe, from being hit by the opponent.

Yep, to keep the opponent guessing is good too so they are not sure whether to move forward or backwards.

Good tip, I experience this problem at times and it can be frustrating trying to get the player off the T. A boast would be a good and easy option to get them off!
