The “chip & charge” is almost a lost art. As we’ve seen the modern game take over the past few years it’s getting more difficult to approach the net. However, in today’s lesson we’re turning the clock back a bit as Brady demonstrates how this play is particularly effective against a pusher.

    Great slice technique Brady. I’m using and working on a forehand version for those Welsh Pushers/Moonballers I come across here aswell as the backhand side. It seems to have a little more on it than the backhand brother.

    Thanks for this valuable lesson. I cant wait to head out there on the court and try the chip and charge play against one of my tennis partners who happens to be a born pusher, he deliberately plays backs every shot and I ended up pushing back everything back at him.

      You can’t out-push a pusher! This is a good play that requires practice but definitely works well against pushers when executed properly. Good luck Sanish!

    Glad you brought up the fact that the “pusher” may lob. As a generalization many pushers are ‘lobbers”.

      Yep, sometimes I already know what many of my viewers are thinking before I even finish the demo. The word pusher and lobber are almost interchangeable.

    What grip are you using for the backhand slice in the Chip and Charge?

      Any slice, forehand or backhand, you should be using a continental grip.
