A Field Hockey Lesson from Tennis - Hit behind your opponent
One of the surest ways to get the ball past an opponent in field hockey is to get her running one way while you hit the other. In tennis, this is called wrong-footing or hitting behind your opponent. In both sports, it works best if you can deceive the opponent about which way you are going and if you can master the sometimes difficult skill of changing the ball's direction on demand.
