In this video you will learn how to hit a tweener.

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

From the continental grip shift to an eastern backhand grip just before the shot

When you are at the net and you get lobbed, turn back and run behind the ball

Separate your legs nice and wide so that you can swing your racket between your legs

If you are late getting to the ball, you could lift your non racket leg

The Shot

Lean over the ball before it bounces a second time

Lead with the edge of the frame and pronate your arm

Swing your racket between your legs

The trajectory of the ball should be flat and ideally to one of the sides to surprise the opponent

The follow through

There isn't much of a follow through, but rather a snap of the wrist

You can practice tweeners on your own by dropping the ball ahead of you and hitting between your legs

The tweener is a difficult but an exciting shot

Play safe, the ball is in your court
