Common mistakes after the lob

Players are often good at executing lobs but make positioning errors after and lose the advantage.  The most common mistakes are:

  1. Not following the lob into the net
  2. Following the lob in but coming too close to the net
  3. Changing sides but remaining at the net

You can see in the diagrams below the 3 mistakes:

1 – Not following it in puts less pressure on the person running for the lob.

2 – If you follow it in but get too close you will get lobbed in return.

3 – If you switch sides but don’t get back you are a target for the net players.
