How can I serve a better floater?

Floater Basics

How do you serve a "floater?"

The main characteristic of a floater serve is lack of spin on the ball. You accomplish this by keeping your hand flat as you contact the serve. Don't follow through with your wrist as you would normally do.

This will allow the ball to travel through the air with an absolute minimum of spin, making its flight hard to judge.

Remember though, you'll need to hit the ball slightly harder, since you won't be getting that "slingshot" effect you'd normally produce with your wrist follow through.
