Because squash is played with a ball that does not bounce very high, and without an open racket face it would be impossible to get under the ball to lift it up above the "tin" or to aim higher on the front wall. Other reasons are:

  • To vary the play
  • To develop drop shots, boasts, lob serves, back wall retrieval of low shots.

The Squash Library/Strokes Movement will give further information in the swing and pronation/supination of the forearm during the drive.
