Tennis: Different colours different directions

Your tennis drills are extremely useful coaching tools.
Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

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

COACHING POINTS

The more time we have to prepare the shot the better we can do that. Players have to learn how to quickly recognise the ball to avoid rushing, and making decisions right before they hit. By performing many drills based on ball perception, players are able to focus, and make decisions much quicker so their level is going significantly up.

In this drill, the player connects ball perception with decision making skills. Basic directional change ability is a must for anyone who wants to learn how to play tennis. The coach can use this drill just to work on change of direction (technical aspect related to different racquet's angle) or he can use it to work on tactical skills (when to hit cross-court/when to hit down the line).
