Tennis: Learn to use backspin

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

DESCRIPTION

The player drops the ball and applies backspin by hitting under the ball. The goal is to hit with enough spin to make the ball bounce and come back to the player.

COACHING POINTS

Topspin prevails in a modern game so many coaches don't spend enough time on sharpening skills that are based on different spins. Slice is one of the weapons that was successfully used in the past and it should be considered in every player's development.

In this drill, the player learns how to apply backspin by hitting under the ball. Continental grip is a must to perform this exercise correctly so coaches have to pay attention to this detail. More advanced players can be challenged by using progression (hitting with backspin in the air).
