Basic Squash Drills : Squash Deep Backhands

Ok, the backhand full drive, this is, we’re
virtually at the back wall. My goal is to hit the ball at the red line on the front
wall and get it to come back and get a rhythm going. So the key here is getting a good shoulder
turn so I can use my body strength to hit the ball versus just my arm. So if I’m at
the tee and I come back into the corner, I want to be able to hit the ball with a full
body turn. So what you do is you try to get a rhythm going so that’s what we’ll work on
here. So I’m just going to hit the ball. Racquet ready, racquet ready, now that’s a good shot.
So I caught the nick on that one so if you do that in a match you win a lot of points.
So I racquet ready, racquet ready, racquet ready, so now I can up the pace, racquet ready,
and that’s going to be tough. So that’s how you take it off the back wall. So this is
a really good basic drill. You’re just in the back corner, you’re learning to hit, you
can hit the ball hard, you can hit it high. So another way of working this drill is to
hit the ball slow and high. This is a very valuable shot. So when you’re under great
pressure, which a lot of times when you’re deep in the corner on your backhand, if you
don’t want to hit a boast you can hit the ball high and that will allow you to get back
to the tee. So working on your straight drive is hard, working on them with more loft, and
you’ll notice that in you matches you’ll be able to start executing these shots when you
need to do it.

    He is right!! The only way of getting the ball back deep to a length from the back court is to hit the ball above the service red line. Hitting below the line even with great power WILL not get it back to a length. Try it!!!!

    He seems good at what he does so anone who thinks they know anything about squash should agree. Otherwise you not what you think you are. Great vid and these tips really do help. They are not meant to imply staying at the wall just a scenario to practice that shot. Good advice, great vids..cheers

  12. StephenBardutz Posted on October 17, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    @lmiketenn yes it will. are you bad? like seriously. its not hard to get the ball to the back of the court from the back by hitting it below the cut line. you're terrible.

    Great video,i'm a squash player my coach is Geoffrey Hunt (Past world Champion).
    Well in backhand,you don't need to turn your whole body,just your arm.

  14. Robert Ty Posted on February 20, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    @ixCavemanxi ummm sorry but your wrong there.. try again

  15. maverick minhas Posted on February 28, 2012 at 8:02 am

    but in the real game this will not work by the way to get perfect in this is to practice coz practice makes a man perfect
    think bout that dude

  16. maverick minhas Posted on February 28, 2012 at 8:05 am

    u should use single dot first coz it will give u more power and will make u play the game nicely and by the way the single dot ball gets warm quickly and bounces nicely as compare to the double dot so i prefer u to use single dot first and if u had enough practice u should use the double dot ball and i am also a pakistani and i live in islamabad this is an advice from your pakistani bro take it and think over it!!!!
