Biomechanics is used to" Provide valid reasons for observed effects, diagnose problems with technique and justify changes in technique." Applying the biomechanical principles found in `Queensland Senior Physical Education' allows the athlete or trainer to analyse the success of the skill, this is shown in task two, in conjunction with the over and under arm serve. This then provides factors, which would effect personal skill acquisition, and allows the evaluator to determine the best possible serve.
