Return to Ready Position

The player has returned to his ready position.

Points to look for:

  • The player has crouched a little more, moving into a basic ready position, as shown by the bending of his knees and slight forward lean.
  • The feet have finished a little too square to the table - the right foot should be placed a bit further back to allow better balance and weight transfer if the next stroke is a forehand.
