Tennis: Total tennis through throwing

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION


-The players only use the service box and play without rackets.
-Start with an over-arm throw from behind the service line (as if serving) and play out a rally with normal tennis rules.
-When the player catches the ball they can only hold it for 1 second. When the player has the ball they cannot move there feet!
-If the ball bounces they must use under-arm throws. If they catch it before bouncing, they can throw over-arm (as if volleying before bounce!)
-First player to 7 points wins, as in the tie-break.

COACHING POINTS
