Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Players play out the point from the hand in the usual way.

However if either player manages to hit a winning ball back behind* their opponent, wrong footing them, they get 2 points instead of 1.

First to 11 points wins!

* Back behind is a shot which is hit into the space the other player is running-away from. So it is a shot which wrong-foots your opponent.

Coaching points

Here in an open play situation players can be encouraged to really go for it on the back behind play with controlled aggression!

However, rememeber the point must be constructed first to earn the space to hit into.
