Tennis: Different colours different depths

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

DESCRIPTION

The coach feeds orange, and green balls to the forehand side. The player hits only forehands cross-court. If the ball is green, the player has to aim deep. If the ball is orange, the player has to aim short.

COACHING POINTS

Ball perception is one of the most important skills in tennis. That's why we have to practice it from the early stages of development when kids can learn it much faster than teenagers. If we have problems with ball's recognition we will never achieve great level of tennis performance.

In this drill, the player connects ball perception with decision making skills. The player's goal is to quickly recognise what kind of ball is coming on her side. If she is able to do that she has a lot of time to prepare the next shot. Most of the juniors have problems with this aspect because these skills are not addressed properly at young ages so it can be a crucial limiting factor in the future.
