This video by Malia Bailey covers the four basic serves: drive serve, high lob serve, drive z serve, and half lob serve.

In racquetball, the server has an enormous advantage over the returner.

  1. You get to hit your serve into a huge area in the back of the court.
  2. You can direct your serve at your opponent’s weakness (backhand).
  3. You can control the speed and direction of the serve.
  4. Your goal is to hit a serve which is not returnable by your opponent (service ace).

In order to win a game, you would like to score at least 5 points per game by hitting service winners.

So, normally you would try to use either a drive or z serve on your first serve. If you fault on the first serve, then hit a lob serve on your second serve.
