I've been playing for a few years now and I've started to realise that one of my problem areas is movement.  I can't seem to find any information on the correct movement from the T to the back/front corners.

I found one article which said you move straight back/forward then arc into the corners and after playing your shot move in a straight line back to the T allowing the other player to mirror your movement (the easiest way to visual this is when going forward to the left corner you take a clockwise route back to the T, front right = Anti-clockwise, back left = anti-clockwise and back right = clockwise).

However, I was watchin a few matches on youtube and noticed the pros move around the outside of the player when going to the back of the court, often arcing in the oposit direction then move straight down the wall, after playing the shot arc back to the T the oposit way (back left = clockwise, back right = anti clockwise).

I heard it mention that movement between juniors and adults is different, so I was wondering if a pros movement would differ from a club player?

Obviously no two shots are the same so I don't expect a definitive answer, just a guide to the most effective movement pattern.

Any links or reference material would be great, too.

The key words have brought up several posts on movement, footwork, etc. listed now under the Relevant Content tab, see top left. 

Squirt around the tabs above and there is a mountain of stuff in our Library, but it does take time to sift through it, and especially for specific stuff.

Our video Library listed under Gold content has many videos that are worth a study.
