Tennis: Warm up: touching the cones

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Players warm up by running and performing dynamic stretches.

The coach should ask players to perform exercises which will help to develop the skills related to the half-volley.

In this warm up set up two cones about 1.5 metres apart. Ask your player to stand facing the cones, then reach down to the cone on his/her left with their right hand.

Then return to the standing position before reaching for the left cone with the right hand.

COACHING POINTS

It is important that the coach chooses warm up exercises to improve skills that are needed to execute half-volleys.

Two major areas worked performing a volley are: controlling the upper body and bending knees.
