Tennis: Get comfortable

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

Cones are set in the ad corner. The coach feeds high balls to the forehand side, the player then executes forehand drive in the air to the ad side.

COACHING POINTS

Forehand in the air is an important skill to add offensive solution to own game. Being able to take the ball out of the air is a tactical weapon that puts more pressure on defensive players.

In this drill, the player works on forehand in the air. Feeding the balls from the basket is the way to get comfortable with the stroke and allow technical corrections when needed. Adding targets to this exercise is a great way to make players more focused or to make them competitive against each other by counting points for each successful shot.
