Dealing with left-handers

Deal with left-handers effectively with this session, helping you adapt on court to tricky situations

Preview Plan


The player sits down on the ground with medicine ball. The player imitates backhand movement, turns with the ball and throws it against the wall.

Coaching points

This exercise improves strengths that is needed to play powerful backhands and avoid injuries. Throwing against the wall in seated position is much more effective than throwing to somebody because the player has to control the ball more to make sure that it bounces back to them.
