I have resumed playing Squash after a break of 13 years. I am surprised to see that a lot of it is like "riding a bike" and I don't completely have to go back to square 1. My straight drives, cross courts, boasts and lobs are all reasonably acceptable. However I am plagued with my old problem of not being able to return a ball that is low and stuck to the wall. I have tried hard and soft and trying to get under it but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions for practice drills etc would be gratefully accepted.

Welcome to the forum Peter.

In this pair routine FH Wall Rally you will see Zac scraping off two wall huggers. Of course, so he does not break his racket he is not swinging wildly with his eyes closed, and his swing is relatively short and parallel to the wall.  Really they are probably the most important key factors. Keep the racket face fairly open to get length and height on the ball.

To solo practice, put the ball in your opposite hand, reach as high up the wall as you can, and just drop the ball, then just take the swing parallel to the wall as far as you can to get the trajectory fairly straight.

The more you practice the better you will get at it. Let's know how it goes.
