RETRIEVING LOBS

DON’T PANIC!!!!!! GET TO THE SIDE OF THE BALL!!!!!

When your opponent lobs a ball over your head, the most important thing to remember is to not panic. Most lobs that are hit too high and deep for you to cover as an overhead will be very easy to play off the back screen.
Try to run to the side of where the ball will strike the back screen so that you can use your forehand (usually a better choice) or backhand to return the ball. Don’t run straight at the ball, as it will be very awkward once you arrive at the ball and need to hit it! The safest choice is to lob this ball back, especially if it is dropping steeply towards the deck without much pace.
