Tennis Drill Demonstration


This is a simple relay race through the cones with some fun variations for your players:

  1. First person in each team balances the ball on their strings moving around the cones to the net and back (like an egg and spoon race)

  2. The ball is then passed to the strings of the person next in line, who repeat the run

  3. The first team to finish wins the race

Coaching points


Race can be done with:

* Side stepping
