Tennis: Control Is The Key

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

DESCRIPTION

The coach throws an easy ball to the player who hits a forehand shot back to the coach. The Coach then throws the ball back again but this time the player hits a forehand shot to the open space (deuce side) where the cones are situated.

COACHING POINTS

Control is a primary skill in tennis and it has to be incorporated from the first tennis lesson. Using a small court demands plenty of control to achieve success so coaches have to emphasise this ability every time. In this exercise, the coach's role (catching the ball) can guarantee high perception of success (big motivation for kids) because he can catch the ball even when it is not going inside the court. One important note: put as many colourful targets into the area to make kids interested because they love colors and prizes.
