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

DESCRIPTION

Coach, 1 player, and a basket of tennis balls.

Coach faces player 1 who is stood on the centre of the baseline.

Coach drops the first feed to his right for the player to runaround and play an inside out forehand anywhere down the court.

Drill continues.
