Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

The player starts on the baseline and is fed 3 balls all to the advantage side.

The balls should be fed deep, medium and then short. The player hits all of the balls backhand down the line before moving back to the centre of the baseline and then moves forward ready for the next ball.

Coaching points

In this exercise, the player hits and moves to the shorter ball every time. Coach should emphasise proper tactical decisions during the hitting, such as the closer the ball is to the net, the harder and flatter the player should hit it.
