Tennis Drill Demonstration
Player and coach rally together.
The player hits shots in this pattern:
- forehand cross court
- forehand down the line
- backhand cross court
- backhand down the line
In this drill the player works on consistency and placement of the ball.
It is important to play the rally for as long as possible to guarantee improvement in a player's repetition, accuracy and fitness.
Explain to the player that by changing direction a lot will force the opponent to run more, so it will increase his/her chances of a successful, point winning shot.
Drill tags: backhand, down the line shots, forehand, passing shots
