Right or Left side?


Back in the ages we had a friend who played tennis a bit differently.
For the serve he held the racket in his right hand - but as soon as the ball came back - he switched and played with his left...
Hmm we wondered then how long it would take until someone very good developed this style into perfection - meaning playing with two strong forehands - one on both left and right side - by just swiftly changing the stick side.. As an extra weapon, such a player occasionally would be able to toss in a surprising backhand swing too.

Hmm, this has not happened yet as we know of.
But the idea is interesting since - if you also have a Floorball stick that perhaps weigh in at some 200 plus grams - and as you do not wear gloves.. In principle a switch between a righty and a lefty shot would not take too much time..
Most of the very best Floorballer players do not hook their blades very much - to also have a poisonous backhand.
We today just wonder if some player would be able to develop such a dual side ability, with great shots on both sides of his or her body as a dual "forehand" weapon.

Crazy idea maybe - but not too much crazier than a Soccer player being able to shot well with both of his or her feet.
Or maybe the comparison is wrong? And maybe it is just too easy to drop the stick - the future will tell.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
