Introduction

Progressive Practices for Developing the Essential Skill in your Sport Practices that I can do to improve my squash play: The basic forehand drive: First I stand in the right hand side service box facing the right wall, holding the squash ball in my left hand. I would then throw the squash ball in the air, let it bounce once and hit it against the front wall with my racquet. When doing this I try to keep the ball straight and parallel to the wall and make it hit the front wall just above the middle line. Then the aim is the ball should come back and bounce in the box, the same box it left. ...read more.

Then, I would try and incorporate my forehand skills into a small game with my own rules, so that it focuses on testing my improved forehand skills. They would consist of two players, all the rules of a normal squash game will apply, although, my opponent will only be aloud to hit the ball so that it lands anywhere on the right hand side of the court. To win any points I will only be aloud to return the ball to the back right hand side corner of the court. After doing all this practices I should have a much stronger fore hand than I would have other wise. ...read more.
