Tennis Drill Demonstration


Ladder is set in front of a player. The player tries to bounce the ball down with the racquet and hit each ball in the next square of a ladder.

Coaching points

In this drill, the player works on controlling the ball with the racquet. For many young players simple bouncing the ball is a boring exercise so using additional coaching aids is a good way to work on this skill for a longer time. Adding targets (ladder squares) to hit into makes this challenge more difficult so even really good players will have to put maximum effort to make the whole ladder at once.
