Space and the illusion of space

Space and the illusion of space is a good concept for players and coaches to work with. Develops perception skills, shot selection, recovery and anticipation. Simply, there is ‘space’ when opponent has not recovered from their last shot sufficiently. There is an ‘illusion of space’ when a player has initially created space by moving opponent out of position but opponent recovers well (with choice of shot and by beating bounce of outgoing shot) and closes that space down.
