Tennis Drill Demonstration
- Player keeps reversed cap on the head.
- Coach rallies with player.
- Player alternates hitting forehands and backhands.
- Player tries not to drop the cap.
In this drill player works on controlling balance. Head of an athlete is responsible for balance so stable position of this body part is necessary to hit good shots even while responding to difficult balls from the opponent. Hat on the head forces player to focus solely on keeping balanced position so at the beginning it can hurt consistency of the shots. Coach should explain to players why they do this exercise and how important it is for their future results.
