In this video, you will learn how to play a backhand slice.

It is an effective single-handed stroke where the ball stays low and changes the pace of the rally, making it difficult for the opponent to hit a winner

The three key steps are the preparation, the shot and the follow through

Use the continental grip

When you see that the ball is coming to the backhand, do a unit turn with the racket leg in front and the racket shoulder pointing to the net

Lift the racket back with the non racket hand so that it is well above the shoulder

The hitting elbow should almost be shoulder high

The shot

Swing the racket forward, from top to down, and cut down the back of the ball

If the ball is low, you will have to flex your knees more and hit under the ball

Open your chest and throw the non racket arm backwards and downwards to help you maintain your balance and add some punch into your slice

Open your chest and throw the non racket arm backwards and downwards to help you maintain your balance and add some punch into your slice

Remember, the backhand slice should be executed with a knifing action with your racket from a high to low direction

The follow through

Maintain the side on stance and fInish with the racket extended in front of you and the other hand behind

You could also negotiate a high ball with an effective slice

Practice the backhand stroke against the wall or with a partner
