Triceps (triceps brachii)
Abs (rectus abdominis)
Hamstrings (biceps femoris)

I think Just about all of them are used to some degree, but the limiting muscles are probably...
Triceps, wrist flexors, and latimus dorsi for overhead shots
shoulders, biceps, wrist flexors, pectoralis for underhand shots
calves, hamstrings, and quads for movement

another very important muscle group is the back muscles when recovering from a lunge.

Adding on, seems like we've miss one of the most important muscles which is the core (abs, mid section muscles). It's used for stabilizing at all times and the power from smashes come from the core to a large degree (not as much as arm and wrist though).

how is it that the latissimus dorsi is used for overhead shots? I know that it's strengthend by doing pull ups, but I don't really think I use a pull up motion when doing overhead shots (not sure if that's clear). I'm not sure I could be wrong

I think that there was a thread on dynamic stretching a few months back.
