Start of Return to Ready Position

The ball is about to bounce on the table, and the player is starting to return to his ready position.

Points to look for:

  • The bat is now being moved to the player's left to return to its ready position.
  • The player's right leg can now be seen to be moving to his right, as he starts to get squarer to the endline of the table.
  • The player is watching the bounce of the ball closely.
