Carrom Aiming Techniques And Trick Shots

In Carrom Board, Games by Steve CunningtonLeave a Comment

Improving your carrom techniques generally need not only practice, but also becoming alert of your body’s position.
Sit with a relax distance between you and the carrom board. It is very hard to balance yourself if you are sitting on the edge of the chair or if you are sitting far away from the board. You may develop anxiety in your playing hand by stretching to reach the board from the chair.
Replace your body movement to fit your shot. If you are aiming to strike in a line to the pocket, line your body straight to the pocket. If you are trying to bounce the striker to a pocket, striker and your body should move in the same way.

Reject placing your feet under the carrom board. This is not a right place to shoot the striker. Keep your feet moving with each shoot for continue blood flow as well as better accuracy.
Maintain a continue height to the carrom board. Stands and chairs differ in height from each board. Your grip may replace if you height changes often. Sometimes the addition of a pillow will help better your height to the carrom board.
Flick the striker in various styles. There are several special techniques of flicking the striker: middle finger shots, index shots, scissor style and thumb shots, thumb shots and middle finger place the corresponding finger as near to the striker as easy without moving it, and then flick it toward the carrom piece. Scissor style contains resting your index on top of your center finger close to the striker, loose the index finger and using the center finger to hit the striker. You may better accuracy by replacing your present flicking technique. Anyway, a drastic change may destroy your game more than help.
Better your speed. Players face one of two common issues: there is no ample momentum to sink the piece into the pocket or hitting piece so solid that it bounces off the frame. Use a dirt-free board to practice sinking just the striker.
Determine whether you are hitting the piece in the best spot. Sometimes the striker will move along the right line you aim for, but the piece misses the pocket. Practice hitting the right spots by flicking the striker at a few pieces lined up in the center of the board.


If you are trying to move in your chair while playing, be alert not to move the chair. This will outcome in a foul.
