You are in defense at the bottom of the court and receive a ball which, after contact with the back wall, comes back staying parallel and very close to the side wall. Always delicate situation here is one of the solutions.


It is therefore quite possible to hit the ball on the side wall which, at that moment, takes a lot of effect and a lot of speed.

What to disorient your opponents !!

In forehand or backhand, it is a technically simple gesture, however it will practice to practice it to properly identify the impact zone on the side wall

A few recommendations, however:

  • To let the ball pass in front of you
  • the impact on the side wall must be close to the end of the glass part
  • at about 70-80 cm from the ground
