For balls approaching high and to your right and perhaps a little too short for a high forehand return (that is if you are right handed – high to your left if you are left handed), you may want to try a variant to surprise your partner.

In our new series of blogs, we show you BailongBall Freestyle elements. This time, we show you the horizontal Racket Twirl – a rotation of the racket around its horizontal axis and the ball.
