  • Blocking Basics
  • Definition of a block - taking a hard attack hit at you in the air and dropping it short into the kitchen or at your opponent’s feet.
  • Objective is to reset the ball back into the kitchen to get back to a neutral position.
  • Eliminate any backswing and minimize your follow through. Let the ball rebound off your paddle.
  • Contact your block out in front but slightly tighter to your body than normal to have maximum stability to absorb the pace of the ball.
  • Balls at your body should be taken as backhands to maintain a forward facing paddle face.
  • Grip pressure should be firm to ensure stability but without gripping so tightly that tension is created in your arm.
  • Bend knees to stay low and contact your blocks closer to eye level rather than reaching away from you.
  • Lead very slightly with the bottom edge of your paddle to create loft and slight backspin to give yourself margin for error over the net.

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.
