Forehand
Around the Academy:

Power forehand
Step 4

The forward swing of the racket should be from low to high.

You should be looking to make contact with the ball at around waist height.

As you get more confident, have a go meeting it slightly higher.

This will enable you to get more power into the shot and get further into the court which will put your opponent under even more pressure.
