Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Coach, 2 players, and a basket of balls.

Coach feeds ball 1 from just inside the t junction of the service box to the corner of the singles court.

Player 1 starts off on the centre of the baseline, and moves to meet the feed and hit a deep backhand down the line, then recovers to the start position.

Coach feeds ball 2 mid court for player 1 to step into and hit a backhand down the line.

Coach then moves backwards along the line, feeds ball 3 just in front of the net for player 1 to move on to and hit a backhand down the court.

Player 1 moves to the back of the court, and player 2 steps in and the drill is repeated.
