Use racquetball ceiling ball shots to move your opponent out of center court. The ceiling ball forces them into one of the back corners of the court and allows you time to take the vital center court position.
Ceiling shots are also one of the best returns of service. And a good ceiling ball player can wear their opponent out by pinning them in the back corners on every rally. Then as soon as they miss a ceiling ball return, you end the rally with a down the line or pinch shot.
It is very easy to practice ceiling balls on the court by yourself. Start off hitting 10 to 20 in a row.
Another great way to practice ceiling balls is by playing a ceiling ball game, allowing only lob serves and ceiling balls. If you miss the ceiling, you lose the rally.
These videos by Rocky Carson, Mary Hogan, John Ellis, and Shawn Royster go over the how/why for hitting ceiling ball shots.
