Tennis Drill Demonstration


Cones are set on both sides of each player, Player 1 rolls all balls cross court. Player B rolls all balls down the line, with both players rallying together for as long as possible.

Ability to control the ball in the easiest activities is important to further develop tennis-specific skills. Cooperation is of utmost importance for young players so this skill should be emphasized in each rally exercise.

Coaching points

In this drill, the player works on different skills at the same time. Ball perception, controlling the racquet face, footwork to the ball and positioning are primary factors that kids can improve. The coach can set the goal (e.g 20 shots in a row without a mistake) to keep kids motivated.
