The basic strategy of the sport is to hit the ball straight up the side walls to the back corners referred to as a straight drive, wall, or “length”.
Attacking with soft or “short” shots to the front corners, also known as ‘drop shots’, causes the opponent to cover more of the court and may result in an outright winner.
‘Angle’ shots are used for deception and again to cause the opponent to cover more of the court.
A skilled player sometimes attempts to finish rallies by hitting the ball at an angle onto the front wall and into an area known as the ‘nick’ i.e. the junction between the side wall and floor, which if done properly will cause the ball to roll out along the floor and be unreturnable.
Balls are 39.5 mm and 40.5 mm in diameter, and weigh between 23 and 25 grams. They are made with two pieces of rubber compound, glued together to form a hollow sphere and buffed to a matte finish.
