Ghosting is playing a point in squash without the ball. Learn about ghosting in squash with this free video on squash drills.
Okay ghosting is really one of the most overlooked practice concepts in squash for the average club player but the pros you may have, also it might mean more to you and it is the same as when we see boxers doing their shadowboxing or in a mirror. Ghosting is where you play a point just by yourself without the ball. What this does is it allows you to practice virtually every shot and you can't fail because there is no ball so it is a confidence builder, it teaches you to use all the concepts and to integrate them into a whole. So when you ghost, you can just say I am going to do ten shots so like that, like that, drop shot, back to the tee, hit a length down the line, watch the ball doing the other type of training we have been talking about, going to the back corner, hitting a volley into the nick so you want to make it as realistic as possible this ghosting because when you do this it teaches you how to use every portion of the court and since you do it a lot you never fail because in your mind you are making every shot perfect but you start learning how to use the boxes in the box, how to stay away from the walls, how to step properly and how to anticipate all the different shots to have the appropriate response so ghosting is a valuable tool in your practice regimen so really take advantage of it. I think five minutes of ghosting every time you practice or on a daily basis will really make your game improve and you can see it is a little bit of a work out.
