Racquetball Drills – Serving Variety

Racquetball drills for serving are super-important because being on the receiving end of a long string of tough serves is a sure-fire way to lose a match. You need a variety of serves both to keep your opponent off-balance, and to take advantage of any particular weakness they may have.

While most players are susceptible to hard serves to their backhand, you may find some who make more return errors on their forehand side. So the key is to have several different serves in your tool belt, and to pay attention to what works best as you progress through the match.

Key serve styles discussed in this video:

  • Drive serve
  • Z-serve
  • Lobs

Beginners are often not proficient in all serves, so try to develop at least a drive serve plus one off-speed serve as an initial part of your game plan. Notice the used of landing zone targets in this video; this is a great way to practice all of your shots, not just serves. Of course, the “human target” shown in this video can also add an element of spice, as well!

    I found that positioning of the serve can greatly increase the chances of scoring. Also I want to try the z-serve a little bit.
