The pinch shot is one of the most effective shots in racquetball. Along with the kill shot, the pinch shot is a rally ending shot. It is better than a kill shot because you do not need to hit the ball as low or as hard.
A very basic tactic to use during a game revolves around the pinch shot
- If you can hit the ball at knee level anywhere in the area around the 5 foot encroachment line
- And your opponent is behind you
- Hit a pinch shot.
If you can add the pinch shot to your game, then expect to start winning more rallies.
