Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

In this drill, the player works on hitting with high trajectory over the net. This exercise forces players to swing from low to high to achieve good consistency. Visual target gives immediate feedback to kids about the previous shot.

Young players love fun games so coaches have to prepare the lesson with this thought in mind. More interesting targets we put on the court, more motivated the players are to work hard and fight. That's why coaches should always change targets to make a quality lesson with youngsters.

Coaching points

In this drill, the player works on accuracy of the backhand strokes. Hitting in one direction helps to achieve consistency while wobble target forces to control the execution. Coach can make this drill as a competition and give 1 point for every ball hit into the target.
