Tennis Drill Demonstration


Players stand either side of the service line and face each other. One player acts as a mover, and the other as a shadower. The mover will move left and right across the service line, never backwards or forwards, and the shadower must keep up with their movements and follow them across the line.

Coaching points

Ensure the drill is done at a quick pace and doesn't become mundane. Players should not simply be going from one side of the court to the other, it should be a challenge for both players. Ensure quick movement, two steps left, three steps right, five steps left etc. Have player mixing it up. Change positions after 30 seconds.
