Hello. Recently I've started to play with some better players rather than just my mates at college, and I'm having problems with my position after hitting the ball. 

Firstly I'm a beginner and my strokes are limited: I only know counter-hit, push, block, and thats about it.  I've been having problems where I'm not in position to hit the ball, when the ball is at/near my crossover point. And tips on where I should move after hitting the ball?

P.S I use shake-hand grip

Hi Johnny,

It is important to think about being in a good basic stance to start with.  Then after each shot follow the flight of the ball and move accordingly.

Take a look at the lessons on the Basic Stance and Footwork Basics.  These will help you.
