  • Offensive Lob
  • Play your offensive lob when all four players are up at the kitchen line.
  • Disguising your lob to make it look like a normal dink is key.
  • Do not switch your grip for the lob. Especially not into a frying pan grip.
  • Keep your swing slow until the last second then accelerate through the ball upwards.
  • Drop paddle head slightly below your wrist and swing upwards to create the loft of your lob.
  • If your lob will be struck out of the air, get low to defend and possibly back up one or two steps.
  • If your lob is retrieved off the bounce, hit your next shot back deep to your opponents feet preferably as an attacking volley.
  • Hit your lob from more underneath the ball if your lobs are often going too deep. And pushing more from behind the ball if they are often going too short.
  • Any spin created should be largely unintentional.
  • Favor hitting forehand lobs over backhand lobs.
  • Aim within one to two feet of the baseline to clear your opponent’s head without losing consistency.
  • Aim over your opponent’s backhand side or cross court to give yourself maximum distance to hit to.
  • Use lobs sparingly since they work best when there’s an element of surprise.
  • The lob is best hit when your opponents are all the way up at the kitchen line and leaning forward or if their mobility moving backwards is poor.
  • Hit lobs when you are balanced and leaning forwards rather than backwards. The lob is most effective when it has less distance to travel.
  • Lobs are effective when hit as a volley but are far more difficult to execute.
  • Hit your lob just high enough effectively clear your opponent so they have less time to react. Extra height gives them extra time to adjust.

Pro Tips

BEN JOHNS

My favorite strategy drill is the Backhand Volley Attack from the Ad Court because it such an effective shot. Practice this and you will win more points!


COLLIN JOHNS

My favorite drill is the Dink Reset Drill because it is so important to work on staying patient and ressetting yourself.


DEKEL BAR

I love to drive the ball so the Drive and Drop Drill is a key component of my game.
