Why do players make small jumps when they are finished with there strokes and should I do that. They normally do a small forward jump or backward jump and also sideways jumps?please make a video.

Hi Tri,

This is to get into position for the next ball.  The little jump helps them to re balance themselves as well.  Jumping is the fastest way to move to the next ball as well.
