Advanced Techniques – Under the Leg

You may recall the advanced technique “Behind the Back and Pivoting“? It helps you return balls approaching you at shoulder level, off to your racket-side. “Under the Leg” helps you returning those balls that approach you high and descend behind you. This move comes in handy, if you don’t have the time to take up position for a high forehand. Just like “Behind the Back and Pivoting” it is a pivotal move, allowing you to stay in place for quick (re)acting.

Advanced Techniques – Behind the Head

You may recall the advanced technique “Behind the Shoulder”? It helps you return balls approaching you at shoulder level, off to your racket-side. “Behind the head” takes care of the other side, your backhand. This comes in handy for example, if you don’t have the time to take up position for a low backhand. Just like “behind the shoulder” it is a pivotal move, allowing you to stay in place for quick (re)acting.

Advanced Techniques – behind the back and pivoting

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. It not only adds the factor of surprise to your game but also adds flexibility to your coverage of the court. Whereas a high forehand return requires you to move towards a shorter ball, this move allows you to maintain your position on the court.
