Squash is a racquet sports game, seemingly similar to tennis, but played on a small indoor court with hollow rubber ball, much small than a tennis ball. Squash is an intense, high impact sport. This squash tutorial demonstrates Squash backhand drive from the front court.
-The rotation of the forearm will continue after racket ball impact, but the motion of the shot should continue through the ball and towards the target point for at least a short while.
-The racket will curve around the front of the body (the arm bends at the elbow) and the racket head will move upwards as rotation of the forearm is completed. If the arm is kept straight, the swing, especially on the backhand will become excessive.
-The follow through should be completed with the racket head on the opposite side of the body to the shot and at about head height.
-The racket then can be brought to a comfortable position in preparation for the next shot.
-By stopping the swing (follow through) after hitting the ball can affect the power in the swing.
-By pulling the follow through across the body can alter the flight path and it is recommended taking the swing through towards the front wall target.
-It is better to finish the swing with the racket head around shoulder height. -Definitely keep the follow through and racket head from dangling around your legs.
FYI, Squash Basics:
* Squash is played between two individuals (singles) or two teams of two (doubles) on a Squash Court.
* One player serves to start a rally which proceeds until one player hits the ball out or down or fails to hit the ball before it has bounced twice.
* Squash can be played using a couple of scoring options, traditional (International) scoring and point a rally scoring (PARS).
* Squash Players having a social game can modify the rules to their own requirements.
