Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Get the player to stand close to the net. The coach then feeds an easy high ball to the player's backhand side. The player then executes an offensive backhand in the air. Note: the player can't touch the net while hitting the ball.

Coaching points

In this drill the player learns how to attack the ball from the backhand side. Standing close to the net and not hitting the net forces the player to take the backswing higher and hit in the higher point of contact. Offensive backhand has to be played with less spin so a high point of contact is a necessity to avoid net mistakes.
