Getting the biomechanics of your swing working correctly is essential to hitting a successful backhand. In the brand new series on SquashSkills with amateur player, Paul Miles we filmed a one on one coaching session and explained the key elements of the swing that allow you to hit with more pace and accuracy.
The modern game has seen players looking to increase the pace at almost every opportunity. If they’re unable to play a volley then you’ll increasingly see the top pros taking the ball ‘on the rise’.
So what does ‘on the rise’ actually mean? It means that the ball is being hit before the top of the bounce and it can be done from a variety of different positions in the court.
Who better to explain how to start adding this to your own game than one of the game’s greatest coaches, David Pearson.
It’s been a busy period here at SquashSkills that has seen us make a few changes to the way we’re doing things.

With our new content this week we’ve given you an insight into not just why we do it and how important it is, but we’ve also laid out all the details as to how to properly construct a squash-specific warm-up of your own… So now there really is no excuse!
