Your tennis drills are extremely useful coaching tools.
Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Fasten a resistance band to the net post.

Walk out until it is stretched as far as possible.

Accelerate in towards the net but before the player reaches the net they need to decelerate and turn to run back out.

COACHING POINTS

  • Make sure they do not turn until they are nearly at a stop to avoid twisting the knee and putting themselves at risk for injury. This is important for when they are turning out of a shot.
  • Use little steps to decelerate. 
  • Accelerate hard once they have turned.
  • Use free arm for drive.
