Tennis: Feed Variation

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Player starts on the baseline with the coach just in front of them, ready to feed the ball to them. The feed should be done in a 4 ball pattern: 1 short forehand, 1 short backhand, 1 deep forehand and 1 deep backhand. The player comes forward to the feed and plays the shot before returning to the baseline ready for the next feed.

COACHING POINTS

This exercise is a basic for any Spanish player. That's why Rafa Nadal or Fernando Verdasco are such great movers. Doing this exercise has many benefits: players work on endurance, footwork and strokes at the same time. This is also a great tool to see how strong mentally your players are if they are forced to do this drill for a long time.

PROGRESSION

Coach can make it easy for weaker players (4 balls) or make it really difficult for more advanced players (20 + balls).
