The Lob

 

In squash, the lob is an extremely effective and under used shot that can be played both attackingly to create a loose return and also defensively to get out of trouble with interest.

As always, the angle at which the ball is played is crucial. Most players play the ball too wide (shot A) so that it either goes out of court or hits the side wall and comes back well into the court making the opponents shot easy. The wider and harder it is hit, the worse the position becomes.

The more effective shot is to play the ball higher, slower and narrower (Shot B) so that it lands in the back corner - short of the back wall - and dies away. On many courts it is surprising how high the lob can be played.

When played in combination with the drop shot, the lob is a deceptively attacking shot. Also, don't be afraid to use the lob from the middle and back of the court, particularly under pressure.
