    Hi, i'm playing with 1BH and i'm interested in knowing how far from the body I should hit the backhand and forehand.

    Backhand: I'm hitting the balls in front of the body (somewhat close) and with the arm stretched parallel to the sideline not the baseline.

    I've noticed that the further away you hit the balls from the body on the backhand the angle of the wrist changes a lot.

    Forehand: I think i'm hitting this between parallel to the sideline and 45 degrees out.

    I think i'll have a look at the videos at fuzzyyellowballs again, but I was just wondering if there were some general rules.
