I have seen the small videos on Pronation but have a question regarding its application.  Should the pronation be a conscious action or does it occur automatically.  If it is conscious how fast should the forearm rotation/snap be? i.e. Should I be flicking my forearm over as quick as possible or allow it to turn naturally?


Your help would be appreciated


Kind Regards

That sounds a good start to getting the swing going.  Gradually try to get a smooth hit, and also the length of the backswing will create more power, the speed of the swing also, and the follow through. Keep stopping and freezing and take a look at the position of the swing before you strike the ball to see that you are in the correct position to unwind into the swing, ie things like good balance, kneess flexed also help, weight transfer.  On the court by yourself is a good way to monitor your progress.

 I had a few hits last night and discovered the following.  If i kept the following ideas in my head butt of handle ponting at the ball from the start of the swing (with open racket face, back of hand facing ceiling on backhand) and then supernating as quick as I could at contact point that the ball really made a nice whacking sound and was much straighter and tighter to the wall.  I found the overall effort I was putting into the swing was probably 20% less but resulting in much more power and accuracy.

It is a squash swing, if you can visual a golf swing, which has a backswing, contact point, and follow through. Take a look at our Squashgame Gold/Videos and you will see many action shots.
