Opening the Court:
Pattern 7

George Zink

Printable Version


George's series on Opening the Court is based on making full use of the dimensions of the court and the whole range of all court shot making. Pattern 7 is a great example. It starts with a high, deep inside forehand to the opponent's backhand, then pausing slightly as your opponent turns and then moving in the hit a swinging volley, followed by a short angle classic volley. What a great way to win a decisive point!
