Sliding backwards during the takeaway can cause a variety of faults, the swaying motion most often causing shots to be sprayed left or right, but seldom hit down the middle.
It is important to remember to feel a shift of your eight on to your back foot at takeaway, to be sure, but when this is happening your hips should be turning in a clockwise direction to help your shoulder turn, rather than moving laterally backwards.
If ever you feel your weight coming onto the outside of your back foot, there is a good chance that your hips are sliding backwards instead of turning
