Moving into the back corners and digging the ball out – what are the scenarios you want to consider?

A high percentage of shots during a match are played in the two ‘channels’ or the ‘alleys’ – a corridor parallel to the side walls. How do you return these shots, be in a strong position and regain the T as quickly as possible? Understanding and improving how you move in these alleys is a major priority if you want to improve your game.

So how do we move into the back corners and get the ball back out of the back corners?

Firstly what we like to teach our players is that before you even think of moving to the back corners, you first consider the possibility to volley! When you look at the ‘alley parallel to the wall, you see have 3 possible scenarios”.

Before you even think of going back to the back corners

– always first consider the volley!
