Figure 1. The running step footwork pattern. The athlete pivoted on the ball of the left foot and took a step with the right foot with the toes pointed parallel with the net. The shoulders turn from being square to the net to being perpendicular to the net. This step is followed by a long crossover step with the left foot in front of the body. The third step brings the right foot around to plant so the toes are perpendicular to the net and the shoulders are squared to the net.
