This type of step formation can be used to move to any corner of the court, and does allow players to move further and faster, especially towards the net.

How:

From the Net: After hitting a shot from the front of court use the dominant foot to step back with first then the other foot, and then the racket foot again and this should take a player back into the ready position, able to move towards the next shot.

From Back court: After hitting a shot from the back of the court, the legs perform a scissor like action as they leave the floor. This means the dominant leg swings forward and the other leg swings back. The non-dominant leg should then be the one that takes the majority of the weight as a players lands on it first, and this should propel them back towards the middle of the court.

Then use the same 3 step pattern of dominant leg, non-dominant, and dominant leg again to get back into the ready position once again.
