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.

To win any points I will only be aloud to return the ball to the back right hand side corner of the court.
