I have primarily been a right hand forehand player, but I got my first basket ace left handed( back hand) a few months ago. I had my right hand in a cast for 6 weeks, so started throwing left hand back hand, within 2 weeks of throwing I got an ace, and I had a bounce out the same round.

I wouldn't call myself ambidextrous, cause my putting was horrendous, although, I did beat me Dad and my friend one round left handed. I was shooting 10-12 strokes higher left handed than right handed per round.

6 weeks later, my right hand back hand improved as soon as I took the splint off my hand. I was throwing very well back hand, better than forehand for a couple weeks. I think throwing left hand back ahnd helped improve my right hand back hand throwing. I was forced to break down my release angle, foot positioning, etc.
