Pro Tip: Which Way to Turn on the Lob
by Owl Creek Staff
Have you found yourself chasing down a lob and ending up too close to the ball to make an effective shot? The key is to not run directly to the ball. This tactic usually puts you too close to the ball causing an awkward shot attempt and usually a put away for your opponent.
Tips for Turning on the Lob
- Whichever shoulder the lob goes over, turn the opposite way to begin to run.
- Make an arc to the ball. This will allow plenty of room for a comfortable swing.
- As you're running, start preparing the racquet for the shot.
- Don't panic. You usually have more time than you think. Sometimes, there is even time to take a quick glance at your opponent to see their court position.
- Play the best defensive shot you can and recover to the required court position.
