by Director Instructor, Kelly Parker

Hitting a good return starts with good footwork. Most people who play today do not utilize the proper footwork to best help them hit a good return. There are 3 items to think about with return of serve footwork. The first is as your opponent goes to toss the ball you should take a step in and then split step.  Next,  turn your shoulders to prepare to hit the ball. Finally you step into the ball and hit. If you follow those 3 things, Split step, turn your shoulders, and step, you will hit a good return.
