In this video you will learn how to hit a forehand overhead clear.

The forehand overhead clear, also known as a lob, is an effective shot to drive the opponent into the rear court. It is played from baseline and can be an attacking or a defensive shot.

The three key steps are: the preparation, the shot and the recovery.

Step - 1 The preparation. Use a forehand grip. Start by turning into the sideways position with the body perpendicular to the net and the head facing it. Shuffle back and lunge on the racket leg.

Step 2 - The shot. Bend your elbow and cock your wrist preparing to swing forward. Your racket hand should be behind the head with the elbow bent, the wrist locked and the racket head pointing downward. Raise your non-racket hand and point at the shuttle to improve timing and balance.

Take off with your non racket leg. Straighten your elbow and rotate the forearm as you hit the shuttle. Snap your wrist and whip the shuttle.

The shuttle should be struck as high in the air as possible.

Step 3 - The Recovery. Once you have put the shuttle deep, shuffle back and get back to the ready position.

The overhead clear shot should drop perpendicular to the ground and land between the baseline and the long doubles service line. Practice your overhead clears with your opponent until you are able to get them nice and deep without much effort.

Enjoy your game!
