Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Players stay on the opposite sites of the net. Player A throws the ball underhand with dominant hand in cross court direction. Player B catches the ball and throws it back.

Coaching points

Throwing is a first step to possess good strokes in tennis. Players should be able to maintain consistent rally while throwing and catching. By doing this exercise, the players get familiar with necessary tennis skills like ball perception, reaction or position to the ball. To make it more demanding for more skilled players, coach can set up targets (cones) or give a number to achieve (25 balls in a row).
