Description: Check out this video featuring USPTA Professional Brett Hobden talking about the importance of the arc ball in today’s game.


The arc ball is a consistent penetrating ball that every player should have in his or her repertoire. This type of ball is executed with good clearance over the net using lots of topspin and racquet head speed. It is also extremely effective due to its high bounce. Many players struggle with hitting the ball out of their strike zone, especially above chest level. Use it in your rallies to move your opponent around and create opportunities to attack.
