Choose a target and play it forward with spin or power.
Each incoming ball is different so anticipate it's trajectory, where to place it and choose what type of shot to play
On the forehand side the forehand drive helps to develop a feel for the ball and understand bat angles and timing points.
The backhand drive is played more from the elbow as you wait for each ball in line with the body before extending and turning bat and forearm.
Against backspin returns can easily go into the net so we need to turn the underside of the ball by cutting, flipping or forehand Looping.
