anyone got any tips on how to hit the shot with your back to your opponent and through the legs, i do it very rarely but dont feel confident with it at all and being a guy you do have to be careful?

Its all about timing. First of all use a chopper grip to do it. When you get lobbed, run back, but don't run back to quickly otherwise the ball will be too close to you, and don't run too slow either, otherwise you won't get to the ball!

It's about practice, but once you learn to get yourself in position its not too hard. You need to let the ball drop quite low and then take a decent swing and hit the ball.

As a guy you do have to be careful, but i've been playing for 12 years and have never hit myself doing that shot. (ok i did hit myself once, but it was my shin!)
