How to Hit the forehand in racquetball
A demonstration of the proper way to perform a forehand stroke in racquetball. This video details proper foot position and other elements of good form with an emphasis on solid hand-eye coordination and good follow-through. A good forehand stroke begins with proper elevation of the racket on the back swing. Your feet should remain parallel to the wall. At the beginning of the downward swing, you should shift your weight slightly to your leading foot while bending slightly at the knee. As you maintain focus on the ball, bring the head of the racket down so that it strikes the ball at a perpendicular angle to your body. Once contact is made, make sure you follow through the stroke to improve both consistency and accuracy.
