The run around forehand can sometimes be utilized as an approach shot. In today’s lesson, Brady demonstrates how to hit various run around forehands while transitioning to the net.

    Thanks Brady, I love the way you explain things. I don’t often run around my backhand but am going to try it more. Do you think the benefits of doing so outweigh the extra time needed to get across the court? It seems like it would be better to take the ball earlier with a backhand. Personally I do find this backhand half-volley very difficult though.

      Every player is different but most players would sacrifice a little court position for hitting a much better shot. Even at the highest levels of the game the run around forehand is commonplace.

    I’ve heard so much about the inside in and the inside out. Really nice how you demonstrate and add the mass and make it real for what you are teaching. On the court I find myself much more remembering your demonstrations than your words. Noticed I am learning about the “feel” to take on the court, like this am from your previous work on the subject. However, today was kind of getting jammed when my opponent kept hitting me body shots on the serve and the ground strokes. …any thoughts about what to do other than abandoning the run around and taking the body shots back hand? Thanks again!
