Chris has started running a weekly instagram 'squash tip' on how to improve technically. Follow Chris on instagram @rydersquash.
Here's the latest one as an example that had some help from club player @danielflower
Keep eye on ball. One of my favourite shots in the long range backhand drop and this image produced by @danielflower highlights the technique.
The way I like to play and coach this shot is to make contact with the ball very low, almost just before the second bounce when it's come off the back wall; well below knee/tin height so i can send it upwards off the strings and use cut to bring it down off the front wall, which i find less risky than hitting down on the shot.
Hopefully, you can appreciate that I'm intentionally slightly 'off-balance' when I make contact and then you can see by my head height that I'm gradually standing up out of the shot as I look to link my movement in and follow up with a volley ideally!
We're looking forward to getting back to group coaching now that England Squash have lifted some of the restrictions surrounding squash and coronavirus.
Both junior and adult groups will be up and running as soon as next week, 7th September. Try booking a class on this website to get you up and running again!
