Tennis: Resistance band pole twists

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

DESCRIPTION

Tie a resistance band to a pole about 2m long and tie the other end to the net post.

Player stands holding the pole about shoulder height with the hand closest to the band in the middle and the other out to the side.

Slowly rotate the pole each way so that each arm faces out to the side.

COACHING POINTS

  • Control
  • Have the player imagine that they are pushing the edge with the band attached until straight forward, rather than just rotating it
  • At first don't allow the band to drag the pole too far back, because it becomes harder to bring it forward.
  • Then the coach can have players deliberately over-rotate to feel what too far is like and when they start to lose power (relevant to a swing before a shot- don't want to stretch too far because you lose power.)
