DESCRIPTION

Cones (stations) are set on the player's side, who starts from the first cone. The coach feeds the ball and the player has to hit backhand inside the court. If the shot is good, the player is moving to the next cone (station). If not, the player has to try again until it is done.

COACHING POINTS

Nowadays kids love games because of phones and tablets available for them every minute. That is why if we want them to participate in tennis we have to make this sport as fun as activities that they pick during own free time. Creating games or challenges is a good first step to evolve simple hitting sport into a quest that they want to be part of.

In this drill this player works on different backhand strokes. We have to remember that different spots on the court require technical modifications in strokes to maintain high level of consistency. Each backhand in tennis is a little bit different so giving kids various stations to hit from will help them to develop backhand that they will successfully use in the future. Additionally during this exercise your players are working on character development because if they can't pass one station they have to be patient and motivated to get through it.
