Tennis: Backhand Variety

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

Coach feeds balls to the backhand side. Player alternates backhand drive and backhand slice in cross court direction.

COACHING POINTS

Building an effective slice is important for any player. Changing the spin and pace are factors that can decide the match's score. Players should be able to execute backhand slice because many players are not used to responding to backspin shots. In this exercise, the coach can see if players feel comfortable with switching the grips (drive vs slice) and if it affects the execution.
