Tennis: Changing grip

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

DESCRIPTION

Player pretends to play a return of the serve.

Player practises moving their bottom hand up on the grip while 'hitting'.

COACHING POINTS

This technical drill is a priority for players who compete at a higher standard.

While trying to respond to fast serves, players have to move the grip up to achieve more control.

By keeping the racquet higher, there is a shorter leverage which results in less power and more control of the ball.
