Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Player stands on the baseline and prepares to receive the ball. The coach alternates between throwing the ball low and then one high to the player's backhand side. The player must alternate hitting the ball using a backhand stroke after the ball bounces and then with a backhand while the ball is still in the air.

Coaching points

In this drill, the player works on backhand after the ball bounces and again when it is in the air. Different points of contact force the player to adjust technique and footwork, helping the player develop physical and technical skills at the same time.
