Tennis: Don't Slow Down the Racket

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands on the baseline. Coach stands next to the player.
  • Coach drops the balls with low bounces without a pause.
  • Player executes low backhands with full acceleration.

COACHING POINTS

  • Player will improve technical aspect while hitting low backhands from the baseline.
  • Players who get surprised by receiving deep and flat balls to the center of the court make mistakes and slow down the racket to control the shot. This lack of acceleration makes the ball fly higher and shorter than a ball where the racket is accelerated at the end. That is why players have to perform many repetitions with low position and racket acceleration to make the response to this particular ball automatic.
