Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

The player wears resistance cords (bands are attached to the waist and ankles), whilst hitting backhand strokes. Resistance cords forces the player to bend knees and maintain low position.

Coaching points

Many players make a lot of mistakes because they don't bend the knees deeply enough. Late point of contact or slower reaction are examples of errors made by straight legs and inefficient position.

In this drill, the player works on the low position while hitting backhand strokes. Resistance cords force the player to keep low position because every attempt to straighten the legs results in a big tension created by this tool. This is also a great equipment to develop strength and muscle endurance of legs' muscles.
