Tennis: Stable Wrist

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

DESCRIPTION

The player inserts a ball between the grip of the racquet and their wrist. While the ball is in place, a player or coach hits balls to the player who hits backhand volleys back, with the wrist in the correct position, assisted by the ball.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player learns how to keep a stable wrist position. The tennis ball helps to keep the racquet up and in a good position. This technique is of utmost importance in low volleys when players tend to drop the racquet head instead of bending the knees.

A good technique helps players make more efficient strokes and helps avoid injuries. Players that play volley strokes are prone to injuries if the wrist is not in a stable position. The players have to learn how to play with the arm, without any motion of the wrist.
