Four Important Factors in Hitting the Squash Ball Harder

Want to hit the ball harder in squash? Read on to find out how.

The single most important factor is timing. This helps you not to be wasteful in your hitting. It is partly a mysterious thing as some players seem to possess the timing naturally, a gift from God. Others have the development - but it is perfectly possible to do this.

What makes timing good or bad is often your reflexes. These must provide different responses in very different situations. For instance, if the ball is hit from 30 feet away towards the front wall and it is rebounding, there is no rush. If you're sending 3 yards from the front wall and the ball is hit the same way, the response must be dynamic. Some players actually seem to find it easier to react quickly.

If you have a good all-round technique, prepare early, and don't snatch, it is more likely that your reflexes will work in their maximum ability. Fitness also plays a part. The biggest hindrance is snatching, and it will happen more often if you're tired or anxious.

Power is only obtained by those who can perform throwing action well. You cock the wrist and break it as you throw the racket forwards. The main question then is whether your wrist is controlled and strong enough to send the ball in the right direction. To do that the wrist has to be snapped and locked in the right position.

No good doing it if you are going to spray the ball around the court like bullets from a machine gun. There is a knack; work at developing it.

Body weight

Even if your reflexes in wrist-snap are not as good as they might be, you can develop a heavy shot by getting your weight into it. This means turning the body so that you are half facing the back wall on the forehand side, perhaps sending 45 degrees to the back wall. And on the backhand you should ideally turn even further, maybe even facing the back wall. Some players stand sideways or have, which is not good enough, unless they swivel their upper body and shoulder.

You can't do this properly unless your footwork is good. This is one of the reasons why a smaller player can sometimes hit the ball harder than a big one. If you arrive in time to become motionless for a fraction of a second before striking the ball, your timing may improve. If you are stretching most of the time you'll be wasting power.

If you hit well, you usually transfer your weight well. This should become a natural process. You should not have to think about transferring weight on the back foot to the leading foot unless there is something wrong with your game. If you arrive too early and becomes statuesque, for instance, may become surprisingly impotent. Develop a flow and continuity between footwork and weight transference. Good balance will help you do that.

Grip

The grip can affect how hard you're able to hit. If you're going to give it a bit extra, your grip will need tightening. Some players have an open grip with the fingers spreading up the handle. It is all right to do this if you are playing a drop shot, but if you're going to let one rip with the fingers spread, you may feel you cannot hold the racket properly. To a certain extent the muscles will tighten up automatically and enable you to grip more as you perform the hitting action.

It is acceptable to have different grips and to experiment with them. Players won't have identical grips because their muscles are developed differently. Sometimes top players moved the grip up and down the handle a little, perhaps because they feel stale and want to put something new into the game. But in theory the ball will be hit harder if the grip is as far down the racket as possible i.e. with the but of the hand on the butt of the handle. That way the length of the arm and amount of leverage on the ball is increase.

Rhythm

Rhythm provides a creative link between grips, movement, and timing. It creates a harmonious relationship between all parts of the body, the racket and the ball, and it helps you strike the ball more freely. To achieve this it is necessary to relax. When you manage this your senses are likely to be heightened and the body is more flexible. Putting it another way: tension stops you from hitting the ball hard.

Engine can take on a mental or physical form. The warm-up can help remove both. Make sure that you perform a full quota of warming-up exercises before the knock-up. Then it is possible to hit hard from the beginning of the match. It also helps take away nervousness and ensure that you're on the ball immediately.

If you're warmed up, prepared, and in rhythm, the ball will heat up quickly. Hitting hard from the start will make the ball hotter and more responsive. If the ball is cool mistakes are more likely to be made. If it is warm, control is easier, and if it is very hot and bouncy, it may suit the fitter player.
