Tennis: Backhand movement challenge

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands on the baseline.
  • Coach throws 4 balls using specific pattern: deep ad side, short ad side, deep middle, short middle.
  • Player moves to the ball and executes backhand every time.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player works on backhand control connected with solid footwork. Every ball in this pattern requires good amount of footwork so this drill automatically shows who is ready physically and mentally for this challenge. Coach should pay attention to player’s position, technical skills as also tactical decisions according to playing from different court areas. For more advanced players coach can set up zones as targets and end the set only if player hits these targets proper amount of times. This variation shows how player copes with necessary demands while being tired and under pressure.
