Solo practice is THE BEST way to improve your control!
Here we give you several different ways of improving your ball control. These exercises are all about hitting certain areas of the front wall while controlling the pace of the ball off your racket.
Ideally you want to be able to control 20 shots in a row on each exercise, time after time before you can consider that particular exercise mastered.
Notice on all practices – the simple racket preparation. Each swing consists on a simple backswing and simple follow-through. Neither is ever too big or too high. These routines are excellent to develop a lower backswing.
It’s not always easy to dedicate time to solo practice, there are so many distractions and life commitments that it’s easy to only ever play matches. Also many people do not know what to do when they are on their own on a squash court. Here are some ideas which are perfect to practice, and they’re genuinely good fun. You don’t have to try them all, but if you can at least try some of these, and spend at least 10 minutes, twice a week you’ll soon notice big improvements in your game, I promise!
