Coaching points

Forehand is the dominant stroke for most of the players at all levels. That is why it should be priority to develop this stroke into a weapon that can bring many points during the match. Aspects like consistency, power, depth and control have to be trained to achieve desired results of offensive forehand. Only by spending time on specifically designed drills players can make forehand really effective even while playing under pressure.

In this drill, the player works on forehand skills. The coach forces player to hit forehand from different areas on the court so constant adaptation is needed to achieve success. The coach can make feeding faster or slower according to the level of the player and intensity he wants to deliver. By being able to hit from different spots to the backhand corner, the player can be really dangerous because during the match opponent will have to come up with good defensive skills to counter these shots.
